Don't expect it's a fancy boutique hotel. It definitely isn't. All depends on your attitude and expectations. It's just fine for a traveller on a budget for a weekend stay. We spent 2 nights there and it was all right. Location - tram stop is right across the street and there are many of them. It's 20 minutes ride to...

Hotel is cheap but clean and provides good basic services. It is located 30 minutes walk from city center (or 5 tram stops). The best thing is the view from the top floor - if you have the chance try to stay on th 5th floor with small balcony to the North. I have always come by public trnasport, there...

Before travelling, viewing pictures I was a little unsure of staying here. But upon arrival we were more than pleasantly surprised... The pictures online do it no justice at all. The room we had was very spacious, and the bathroom was amazing! The whole place was spotlessly clean and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The location...

I must say that this hotel is fabulous. The hotel staff is very friendly and accepting. They made my stay very comfortable. The hotel is very close to centre and it's absolutely wonderful. Rooms are very clean and spacious. All the receptionists are very nice and friendly but patrik is the best amongst them. I surely be staying in this...

We stayed for three nights. Hotel is well maintained and we enjoyed pretty decent comfort throughout our stay. Breakfast was fine, but the choice could have been a bit better (add hard boiled or scrambled eggs and some more fruits). Hotel was neat and our room was cleaned every day. There were meant to be free toiletries as per description...

We stayed there for three nights in december-14. It was a nice and cosy hotel,the rom was really small and warm. It was about ten minutes by tram to get to the old town. And by taxi it was around 500.- from old town to the hotel. The breakfast was ok.

Our shower sink was clogged since day 1 so the floor got all wet. The door absorbed all the water at the end of the day. So the bottom of the door got all wrinkled. The tv wasn't working even though we changed the batteries of the remote control at the reception. Breakfast food is ok could be better. On...

Looking for the upsides here there is excellent free wi-fi, plus there are innumerable trams that run past the hotel, indeed some run right through the night for you clubbers out there. Furthermore, it is on a fine old cobbled street if you like that sort of thing. HOWEVER, if you are staying there in a September heatwave and the...
