The staff is friendly and breakfast is excellent. The rooms are nice, however, I think they should put more effort into upgrading the bathrooms and toilets. The location of the place is good and bus stop is very close.

I booked a deluxe room with a king-size bed for 2 nights. It is a historic hotel with a unique charm and architecture. The room is small, electricity plugs are few. The floor and bed were squeaky. The wi-fi was not always working, which affected my work, as I was on a business trip. Breakfast was OK, the service not too enthusiastic, but most other staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. I love the roof-top terrace while the pool is a mini mini mini pool; I would say that the pool is rather a decoration than practical to use. The location is good, several restaurants and stores in walking distance and many interesting streets in the neighbourhood to explore the old town. The hotel offers very affordable rates, therefore excellent value for money, if you like a historic and rustic type of hotel.

Beautifully decorated heritage hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Even though our room faces the street, it was quiet. The hotel is centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere. We opted out breakfast at the hotel and there were lots of places to have breakfasts nearby. The room was comfortable. The bathroom was small and a bit tired. Wifi was weak.
