“Excellent location with a warm welcome”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Very conveniently located for both the station and main attractions. Found the rooms and bathrooms to be very clean and met all my needs for an overnight stay, even including a TV which was an unexpected surprise. The owner was extremely friendly and went out of his way to be of assistance. If you are on a tight budget, you could do worse than spend a night or 2 here.

A bit hard to find, and VERY basic. Main problem was the disgusting bathroom, with mold in between shower tiles, very moldy shower curtain for the shower/bidet combo, and the dirty and cracked plastic cup. Had the bathroom not been so awful, I could recommend the hotel, because the owner was very nice and very helpful. I wasn't expecting much since it is only one star, but I was expecting it to be clean! Narrow winding stairs to rooms on second floor would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues.

Great location close to station , practically in the middle of the leather markets, 5-10 minute walk to all attractions. Staff very friendly and helpful including not minding that we arrived at midnight. Rooms basic but very clean and tidy. Price not particularly cheap for one star hotel but given all the positives probably reasonably priced .Breakfast included coffee and croissant.

This is a fantastic hotel for the price. It is located about 10 minutes from the main train station; the walk involves going down a few side roads but after you do it once you won't have any problems.

The manager during the day was fantastic as well. Great sense of humour and full of knowledge. He went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

The only minor issues were that when we were there, the hallway had a slight smell of smoke about it, and our shower door wouldn't close. But for the price, we couldn't complain!

It has a great rustic, castle feel to it as well. When you get there, there are large wooden doors. You press the buzzer on the wall and they open automatically, with an eerie creak (but this adds to the atmosphere). Then another set of gates open and you follow the stairs up a few plights to the reception. Keep going until you see a big reception sign.

LOCATION TIP: I forget the name of the square this hotel is located in but make sure you look it up before you go. When you get to the square, there are no obvious signs which tell you which building the hotel is. But look for all the bikes parked, and big wooden doors. To the right of the doors is a golden sign with the hotel name written is letters distinguishable when you get closer. Press the doorbell and follow the stairs up and up, until you see the reception sign.
