    Room was not clean. Half of the lights in the bathroom were not working. Also the shower hose broken down on the second day (we wrote the meesage through booking app, but got no response). On top of that the room ventilation was rather poor and AC did not cool down properly, since it was in a closed box. The breakfast was OK, however, as it is self-service, be prepared that other guests may eat some of the food completely, e.g., jams, cereals or bread, so that you will need to help your self with what is left.

    Very good location in close proximity to all historical points of interest as well as to the train station. The hotel has a nice design and looks quite new as well. Our room had windows into inner yard and hence it was not noisy. Please also note that breakfast is self-service, so do not be surprized when there is no one at the kitchen to help you.

    The service is way from perfect - to get the keys you need to go to the nearby restaurant where nobody speaks English, there is nobody in the property most of the time. You can hear everything that happens in other rooms or in the property’s kitchen. The breakfast is just a cup of coffee.

    Location is great - close to the city center, but still quiet and peaceful. The room itself is good - it’s clean, stylish and spacious.

    There are no staff when you arrive, you are required to pick up the room key from a local restaurant. I emailed the property asking them to confirm details about breakfast and check-out, and received no response. This was frustrating as my stay was only for 1 night. Breakfast was extremely poor quality, one of the worst I've experienced. We had to eat out. The staff advised me to leave my luggage at the nearby restaurant on the day of my check-out. I walked there but the restaurant was closed so I had to bring my bags back.

    No staff was available in the property during check-in (3 pm), we have been asked to go to a restaurant nearby to grab our room key. We had a similar experience during check-out: We have been told that we can store our luggage in the same restaurant, but actually the restaurant was not even open at the time we checked out (10 am).

    Room doors are 1m from reception desk and kitchen, you hear every sound, no privacy. We were waken up about 6:00 when somebody was using coffee machine. If you like to sleep more, I would not recommend this place. Not sure what people mean saying "access to kitchen all day". We were told, that kitchen is for staff only, what we can use is table and cutlery. While room cleaning, our clothes were moved from chair to bedside table, which was dusty, so the clothes were dusty too. In our bathroom hand-shower doesn't fit handle, so you always have to keep it in hand.

    This place is set out like a hostel but charges hotel prices which was very disappointing. Having all of the rooms attached to reception/the breakfast area offers no privacy for anyone and means people coming back late wake up those who are in bed. We had to pick up our keys from a pizzeria, which is fine for a hostel but weird for a place charging hotel prices when it's not even peak season. We had two rooms and one of them had a mysterious smell akin to that of a dead rat

    The rooms are pleasant and clean with good showers and kept very warm. The man on reception at breakfast was very professional, it would have been nice to see him when we wanted to check in!

    I would certainly never stay here again, nor would I recommend it to anyone! The booking.com info I received said I could arrive between 11am and 8pm but when I arrived just after 4pm, a handwritten sign on the door said I could pick the keys up from the pizzeria - which was closed from 3-7pm. I tried several times to call the owner, she said she was coming but never showed up, and just told me I could get the keys at 6pm, so I had to wait over two hours before the pizzeria opened around 6.30. It was an awful arrival: I paid a lot of money to stand around in the street, having traveled a long distance, and the lack of concern or any genuine apology from the owners was shocking. You cannot charge people serious money for a room and then not let them in - totally unacceptable for someone in the 'hospitality' business. The room was badly overpriced considering that it was very plain and simple. Truly terrible experience.
