We spent 4 nights at this hotel and were quite pleased with our experience. Given its great location (a block away from both the train station and the cathedral Dom), I was pleasantly surprised that there was little to no noise at night to disturb your sleep. We saw the cathedral from many angles and during many times of day given our hotel location.
The rooms are quite small, but not uncomfortably so. The light fixtures were more recently updated, but the furniture was quite out of date (a built in clock radio on the bed, whoo!). Our toilet broke the first day we were there - but we told the front desk and they had it fixed by the time we got back from dinner. There was some smoke smell each time we entered our room, but opening the window and turning on the fan quickly remedied that and it was not a nuisance at all.
I will admit that the small elevator scared us so much the first time that we opted to go up the stairs with our luggage instead of the elevator. We did eventually take a risk used the elevator and it does work, even though it was highly questionable when on the first floor and the back door was not completely closed (the elevator has doors on both sides).
We opted out of the breakfast at the hotel and instead explored the city in the mornings to find food - but looking into the breakfast room it always looked clean and well stocked.
If you are traveling by train and want to focus on old town, I would recommend this hotel.
