So we picked this hotel at the last minute because it was close to the Altstadt where we were going to attend Christmas markets. There is no free wi-fi, breakfast was not included (11 euro per person), and the parking was on the other side of the altstadt.
However, the hotel is literally right at the opening of the main bridge (near the brass monkey). So the location is VERY close. The parking is just 3 blocks away walking (discounted rate of 8.50 euro per day). I get my wifi free anyway, and went out to eat breakfast at one of the numerous cafes just around the corner.
The hotel is SMALL with no lift and narrow hallways. We were on the 3rd floor up (4th floor for you Americans) so it would be inconvenient if you had any kind of luggage. We had just backpacks so it wasn't a problem for us.
We were on the top floor, with an inner room, meaning that it was QUIET. The room itself was small, but correctly furnished, so that it had a living area a little separated from the bed area. The bathroom was SMALL, but we managed just fine. Only 1 person in the bathroom at a time tho! There was no hairdryer, which was a surprise, especially since it is winter.
The reception was cordial, but not overly friendly.
All in all, a nice hotel, especially for a quick overnight stay. Do NOT bring kids, do NOT bring luggage. Expect to get your exercise and feel bad for creaking wooden stairs and you clomp up and down.
