Many reviewers have noted the dark rooms. The problem is a lack of lighting and wattage. The rooms are too dark to comfortably read a book at night. During the day, the light from the windows solves the problem. Our room had a few other oddities, like a mirror leaning against the wall, no luggage racks, and a climate control that either did not work, or we did not understand. Even so, the room (one grade up from standard) was large and very nicely appointed. Our room looked out the front of the hotel onto the main street and was up the staircase from the bar, but noise was not a problem.
The location is outstanding. It is short walk from the train station and a short walk to the old central city where most of the tourist attractions are located. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was acceptable to good. The breakfast room doubles as the restaurant and tearoom and is pleasant.
If you have any balance issues, the bath tub/shower are a problem. The lip of the tub is quite high and there are no grab bars. The large bathroom included heated towel bars.
We thought the Pillows provided reasonable value.
