Very nice hotel, very friendly (and multi-lingual) staff! Breakfast was great. Only downside was the shower which isn't really suitable for a larger person! The doors don't open very wide and when closed, it's a bit difficult to move without adjusting the tap!

A very friendly good value hotel. Helpful staff who were happy to biok restaurants for you. Breakfasts were excellent, good choice of hot and cold food. Beds were very comfy. Quiet location, but only a few minutes walk from the Old Town. Very impressed.

It's small, but clean with a nice & warm design. Yes. the shower stall in the bathroom is small, but it shouldn't be any problem for a normal sized man. I'm 190cm...
