It is quaint, well-located, affordable and the staff were very friendly. I can see why others like it but it was not for me -- I couldn't sleep. The building is old and, as they readily admit, not soundproofed. If you are a somewhat light sleeper, you will have problems sleeping here -- you can hear room neighbors' showers go on, cell phones go off, conversations in the hallway, creaking of the floors, etc. Another problem on the sleep front is that the mattress was as firm as a futon and the pillows weren't pillows but that long "uni-pillow" thing that is terrible for side sleepers. Between the noise and the bed, I barely slept.
I might also add that this is an old and retrofitted building. For example, the floor in my room was badly warped/pitched. I would not be surprised if there was a drop of 4-5 inches over the span of 10-12 feet. Electric cable runs in channels over the walls, the toilet is in a separate "room" apart from the shower (and raised up of of floor level, I assume to accommodate plumbing), etc. This is no big deal if you don't mind a little extra "character" but it is worth noting. I actually thought the appearance of the hotel was appropriate given its proximity to the old city. It feels rustic, mostly in a good way.
