We stayed for three nights and I'll start with the only detraction: Our room was too hot. The A/C was not yet switched on for the season and we stayed in a second floor room that was quite small and had only a door out to a shared balcony. As such, we couldn't leave the door open at night to cool the room, and it quickly became stuffy and too hot, compromising our quality of rest. This would normally be a deal breaker for me, but we still liked this hotel for a variety of reasons: First, the front desk staff were excellent and proactively helpful, offering solid recommendations for dining (ignore their suggestions for affiliated restaurants and ask for other ideas) and guidance about the trains in and out of town. Secondly, the hotel was well-located and walkable with carry-on luggage from the train station. It was also very quiet with the occasional klutz hammering up and down the metal stair case. In addition, the room was clean. Finally, the highlight was breakfast. Cereal, eggs, juices, fresh fruit, and pastries. A proper way to start a day of sight seeing. Advice: We booked through a third-party web site, so breakfast cost us an extra 10 euros a day. We learned on checkout that booking directly with them would have given us a lower rate and breakfast included in our price. Do note this.
