We (family of 4) booked a family room for two nights. The receptionist told us on arrival about the room being small and about the extra beds making it tight for space. One could see from the façade that this was an old building so I wasn't too bothered by a little squeeze in the room. It was to be... More

Perfectly situated in the middle of the city, quite a bit of noise from the drunken revelers in the street outside during the night (this was a Saturday). Huge bathroom with two showers and double sinks. Great breakfast. Good experience all in all, the hotel is old and in need of some upgrades here and there.

Very good location. Very interesting old design. There is many different restorations near hotel First! It was not a silent room, as I asked. It will be to repair the shower, install air conditioning.

Quite expensive considering the standard of the hotel (it is in need of some renovation) but could be worth it because the location is great. Breakfast is good and reception staff friendly. Note that there is no way of entering the hotel without taking the stairs. There is an elevator once you have been able to get inside.
