    Asked the lady at the reception where we could hire bikes. Despite 2 computer screens in front of her she couldn't provide an answer. Didn't even bother to use the keyboard. We walked outside and googled the answer on the way back to the guesthouse. On arrival the reception tried to make us pay for the rooms although we had already paid for them through Booking.com. That took them 10 minutes to figure out which in my opinion was 9 minutes too long. Hotel is more suited for business travelers than leisure travelers. Loud music in the courtyard of the restaurant on the first day.

    Nice central location, room was clean and beds were comfortable. Friendly breakfast staff. Hotel Elisabeth reception and breakfast area has a nice modern design.

    Quiet, clean, very near to the historical town by walk, only...

    No own reception, need to walk approx 3-400m to Hotel Elizabeth in order to check in, check out and also to eat the breakfast (!!!). Also there is no own parkplace for cars, but in front of the hotel an underground parkhouse built. A night is around 15EUR (from 5PM to 8AM).

    Quiet, clean, very near to the historical town by walk, only 1-200m. A very good steakhouse placed on the groundfloor (called Angus), tasty foods (not only beef) you can eat.

    The location where we stayed had a unpleasant smell in the corridor. Might be temporary. Long walk from check in (hotel) to accommodation.

    Heating did not work properly. Bathroom door couldn't close. Restaurant underneath was giving a party. Music was so loud as if we were partying with them. Result we couldn't sleep until 3h30 in the morning.

    The location was good, in the middle of the centre.

    It was closed when we tried to check in on a Sunday. This should have been made clear on booking. We had to walk to sister hotel, and use this hotel for breakfast.
