I stayed here for two nights. When I checked in, they said I had been upgrades into a "Zen" room. Their spa is called Zen, and I take it this was some kind of cross-promotion they were doing to try to make the hotel feel more like a spa.
The room was very clean and a good size for Europe. The bathroom had been re-done in modern style. There was a very nice jacuzzi-style tub, but it had high walls and was a bit off the ground, so it was a bit difficult to get in... Almost like you needed stairs. There was something above the bathroom ceiling that kept making a loud, vibrating buzzing sound, that went off every 5-10 minutes, I could never determine the source of the noise, and when I was about to complain about it at 1:30 in the morning because it was keeping me up, the noise inexplicably went away and I didn't hear it the rest of my stay.
The shades in the room had about a 2 inch space between them, and the room I had faced east, so the morning light came in very early in the morning. Also, the walls are paper thin. You can hear every step of anyone in the hallway walking by, as well as every flush of your neighbor's toilet, every noise in your neighbor's room, and if they had their tv on, there was no need to turn yours on because you could hear every word of it.
The location was nice. It's at the base of the main hill going up to old town. If you have mobility problems and wish to explore the Old Town, I would not suggest this hotel, as the walk up the hill can be tiring, although to be fair I am a bit out of shape...
I don't eat breakfast, so I can't comment on the quality of the included breakfast.
When I went to check out at 5:30 in the morning, there were two people at the front desk. One was on the phone, and the other pretended to look busy. Although there were no other customers in the lobby, it took them approximately 5-6 minutes before they acknowledged my presence and then another 5-6 minutes to actually check me out of the hotel, even though the room had been prepaid...
All in all, the hotel looks nice and is very modern, but it's not very comfortable, especially if you are a light sleeper!
