We stayed for 5 nights in what I think was the only room with a door facing out into the stairwell of the apartment building the B&B is housed in.
Our room was pretty good, nothing spectacular, but as a place to crash after a long day, it definitely did the job. The only major problem with it, was the non-sound insulated door, which as noted, faced out into the stairwell, allowing any and all sounds from there to filter unhindered into our room.
This was cause for some serious concern on the first night (a friday night), where loud music was also filtering in from somewhere, possibly the restaurant below.
However, while we didn't go to sleep until 1am on the first night, the other nights we didn't have any particular problems. As also noted, our room was the only one facing directly into the stairwell, this shouldn't be a problem with the other rooms.
The room was cleaned and the bed made every day, and breakfast was served every morning in largely the same constellation, with some variation (generally pretty good). On the day before our last, we even came home to find a bottle of 'brut' and two glasses, along with a note.
The day we arrived, Simon drew a great 'homemade' map for us, and told us when it could be a good idea to see what and then showed us the DVD's we could borrow for watching in our room if we wanted to relax one night.
Unfortunately, Simon, who was otherwise very kind, if a bit stressed perhaps, forgot to tell us that we had to pay cash the day we left, which caught us quite by surprise and had us scrambling, trying to get 650 euro from our VISA cards, which we couldn't do (those darn things have upper limits), so we paid him some of it and arranged to wire him the rest when we got back.
Our stay was good, and if it wasn't for the noise and him forgetting to tells us about the money, it would get at least one more star.
