Having given a few delicate clothes to be laundered (major mistake!), not only were they not dry-cleaned or ironed, a blouse was returned with a hole right in the front middle! Hotel laundry people denied having anything to do with it, of course, and reception people said I could only be compensated with about 3.75 euro (the cost of washing... More

The Hotel is located in an interesting historical building dating from the twelfth century but many times restored and rebuilt in the end to a patrician home, then a student hostel and finally a fine hotel. Reception was efficient and friendly albeit rather perfunctory. Lots of corridors to pass thorugh on the way to my room. The room was wonderfully... More

A very clean, friendly place that has superb eating (especially breakfast - it has its own bakery) that is about 15 minutes walk from the mainline train station. Right in the middle of town as bus services are about a minutes walk from it. But it has no lift facilities so walking up and down on small stair case with... More

I don't know where to start. Quite sad, as the building has a lot of potential. In short this place is overdue an significant make-over by at least 15 years. They may claim it is 'charming' or historic, but unless if you like the impoverished aristocrat style (the real one, not the fake one you see in interior magazines) I... More

Very unhappy experience. We had two rooms, one was an Ecnimy Single that did NOT look like the photos provided by the hotel. Instead of a large window of close to 2 sq meters, there was a skylight of less than 1 sq meter. The foot of the twin bed was tucked UNDER a self. Look at the photo we... More

The pictures on the Hotel site are very deceptive.The Hotel consist of 2 buildings,front one where the restaurant is located and other one resembling 3 floors wooden "shack" in the back,where most rooms are located.

It is a building with a lot of history and that is fine. It has character, which is appreciated. It would have been a two star rating if not for the extreme friendliness of staff and the rather good kitchen. Yes the pigeon in the bar is an interesting add-on, though it should be fed rather than being ignored. The... More

The hotel is in a lovely historic building. The staff are absolutely delightful. The restaurant is excellent. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is great... But the curtains are almost transparent. The room is illuminated nearly all of the time, which makes it difficult to sleep. I'll come back again, but only in the winter! Please buy some blackout curtains... More

Hotel very well located. Staff friendly- superb breakfast offerings. However no safe, tissues, toiletries or coffee making facilities. Room windows can be opened but room very noisy ( no double glazing?) However only EU95 per night with breakfast included so good value. Room quite spacious and clean.
