I assume it's for safety, but there is no toaster and a 30 minute timer on the hob and oven, which was a bit annoying (as I needed things to cook a bit longer). Also the touch operated hob was not so great; it only seemed to respond sometimes (you need to put the timer on first, but even then it didn't necessarily work).
Booked a single room (which was a twin room). Comfortable, well sized room with a view on old city, 10 minutes walk from the train station, a few minutes to all tourist attractions. Quiet room. Superclean, everything spotless. Convenient kitchen with sufficient fridge and freezer space. Super Wifi. And a great prize. Definitely would come back - no other accomodation option that I looked at came close in overall value for money.
