Overview: The Akzent Hotel Gasthaus Schranne is a good choice for a hotel within the city walls, especially if you want the option of air conditioning in the summer. Parking is free, and breakfast was good. Wifi costs extra. My only issue was that the air conditioning unit suddenly decided to make noise, but I believe this was just bad luck and other travelers should not expect this.
Location: The hotel is located on the north side, just inside the city walls. The entire old city is easily walkable from this location. The area immediately around the hotel seemed quiet during my stay.
Room: I opted for a superior room with air conditioning. It was large, clean, and modern, with an excellent bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. The windows were on the front of the hotel, overlooking the public parking lot and city walls.
The option of air conditioning cost an extra 20 euros, but given that it was 87F (31C), it was worth it. I did not find any other hotel within the city walls that even had the option. The only problem was that the air conditioning unit (an otherwise extremely nice, quiet and new inverter type unit) began to make a high pitched noise around 4am. It had been running quietly all day, but a fan bearing probably went out at that time... just some bad luck. The temperature outside had dropped dramatically overnight, so I just turned the unit off. I was only staying one night, so I did not ask to get it fixed.
Facilities: Parking is free. There is a large public (pay) lot directly in front of the hotel, but a few spots are allocated (free) for the hotel, so make sure you park in the correct place. I believe there is also free parking available behind the hotel.
I did not have dinner at the restaurant, but breakfast was very good and included sparkling wine for mimosas. Wifi costs 6 Euros per device, and I did not opt for it.
Value: I found the hotel to be similar in price to other hotels within the city walls. The things that make the Schranne hotel stand out are the convenient free parking and the option of an air conditioned room.
