The location of the hotel is superb, situated right in the market area of the old town centre. A variety of restaurants are just a stone's throw from the hotel, from pub-style to fancy French cuisine. A 10 minute walk from the train station.
The room itself was clean and comfortable, and as expected in Europe, tight for size. The beds and dark room colours provided a good night's sleep. Unfortunately the darker colours left the place seeming pretty drab during the day and I needed a flashlight to get a decent look inside my suitcase. We stayed for 6 nights….a stay of 1 or 2 nights would have been more suited for this hotel, or at least the room we stayed in. There was no A/C in the room (not a problem for us as nights were cool), but there was a large window that opened wide.
Staff were very responsive and service was impeccable. We did not have the breakfast as there were so many restaurants nearby (including a well stocked grocery store) and it appeared to be overpriced based on other in-hotel breakfasts we have had in Europe. There was no restaurant in the hotel, but they did have 24hr bar (no food).
