This hotel gets a lot right. However, none of that matters if you can't sleep. I was stuck with room 103. I heard every conversation from the lobby wafting up the staircase as well as the VERY LOUD pub next door: broken glasses, people singing, blaring music until 1:00 a.m. To add insult to injury, the three windows were covered with transparent white sheers, so the room never got dark. The hotel can't control the location of the pub, but they can control their interior: they could add heavy drapes to keep out the light and noise, install windows that would reduce the sound, and place a barrier between the lobby and the room. The fact that they can't be bothered to do so just shows disdain for their guests. Obviously they don't depend upon repeat customers so they can get away with selling an inferior room. Can't believe I paid 190 E for this room (for one). They did give me a 15% break after I complained.

Great Breakfast!
Hippocampus was very nice. My room was spacious and clean and centrally located. But the highlight was the breakfast! Awesome! Full menu to order from, included in room price. Service was outstanding too.

Very nice and great location
I stayed for two nights at Hippocampus. My room was very clean and modern. My only complaint is that there was a bar or nightclub across the street which played loud music. It didn't bother me too much though, and the hotel provided ear plugs. The breakfast was included and it was very gourmet and tasty! Location was very good too - easy access to the hiking path up the walls/fortress.

Upscale and trendy interior
Very pleasant and the staff accommodating. Parking is outside of old city at a public lot. They gave a discount to compensate. No obvious signage so difficult to locate.
