The hotel is in a wonderful location in the old town center - we walked everywhere easily. Our biggest problem is the hotel is the thick of renovation. We arrived and were informed on the spot that the hotel is not finished. We were offered either the choice of a twin room with no table or a double room with no TV nor table. The hallway and stairways are far from being done - no carpet with tons of tools and construction materials lying around (there is a working elevator). We looked at both options and one of the rooms had very strong new paint smell - impossible to stay there.We were give a 8 Euro discount a night for the situation.
My first reaction is cancel the reservation and go somewhere else - how can they not tell us ahead of the time that the hotel and our rooms are not finished?! But we were tired and it was late so we took the room with less smell.
The rest of the stay was uneventful - it was very quite so we slept well. Staff was pretty friendly.
I will stay at this hotel if it's all finished, as the location and price were good. As it is now, I don't think I will recommend it to our friends - you might end up getting a room with no desk and empty lamp shades with no light bulbs.
Make sure you check with the hotel about the details of your room if you are booking the hotel.
