First of all this is not a hotel, but rather a B&B with terrible customer service and no effort has been made whatsoever to make it a pleasant hotel. Upon arrival, about 15 minutes after the check-in time stated online, we were told by an angry and annoyed man (most likely the owner) that we were too early. He complained to us how busy he was being the only one cleaning the rooms etc. When politely asking if we at least could leave our luggage there, he let out a big sigh. Eventually we were given a room but we felt far from welcome at this hotel.

We stayed in a twin room with private bathroom. The room was facing the street and very hot with no air conditioning nor fan. One window could be opened slightly but in the summer heat it wasn't much of a relief. There was also a smell of mould in the room as well as in the bathroom where paint was flaking off in the ceiling. It was obvious this hotel doesn't want to spend any money nor effort to make it nice for the guests.

The free wireless internet connection did not work and the reception on the TV was very poor. The screen was also so tiny it was impossible to watch from bed. We were very disturbed by noise from other rooms as the walls were so thin you could hear everything from next door.

Breakfast was included and served in the hallway. It was tea or coffee with bread and cheese. Not even a toaster was available and the coffee was awful. Again, no effort was made to serve a nice breakfast.

When leaving the hotel the owner just took the key of us without saying a word. When asking if we could store the luggage there a few hours he was very annoyed again and charged €2 per bag, even for a small plastic bag!

This hotel is defenitely not worth the price they charge and I can't recommend it to anyone.

Its an emergency measure only, in my view (unless you book one of the larger rooms). At least this is what I would say based on my experience. Although the location is decent, near the train station and a short walk away from the center of town, it just offers very little in the way of comforts/amenities... or really anything but a roof over your head for the night. Granted I paid only 50 euros for one night in a single room with a shared bathroom (in the hallway) and I booked fairly late (other hotels had gotten more expensive), but I would not recommend staying here unless you go for one of the bigger and more modern rooms (they must exist since they're showcased on their website)... then it might actually be very good value for money, but for a solo traveler with just 20-30 euros more you could get something a lot more comfortable (and with your own bathroom). They serve some drinks and fruit in the hallway in the morning and the service was fine, but overall quite disappointing really.
