Not worth the inconviences
The staff at this hotel were very nice and accommodating, however, the logistics of this building make it hard to recommend this hotel. There are nine flights of stairs and the first floor of the hotel is the second floor. Our room was on the very top floor so it was hot and there are no room temperature controls so we had to leave the window open all the time. There are only two plugs, none in the bathroom, and the beds were very uncomfortable. Breakfast was good, and the location was perfect for walking to everything. I also did not get the room I booked, I booked for two doubles and one single bed for four adults, but even after confirming my reservation by email, they gave us a smaller room with two singles and one double with no explanation as to why the room I reserved was "not available" upon our arrival.

Great location, comfortable room
Be prepared to climb stairs, other than that we loved our room, the location, the breakfast. There was 3 of us traveling together and we were comfortable in our room.

Good location
Our room was comfortable enough though a little too warm for us. Lots of stairs since there is no elevator - a point I missed when booking. That part was difficult for us. Location was great - clean - pleasant people running the hotel. We had a hard time with the shower getting it to work properly. Breakfast was fine.
