4/10 Fair

This was the smallest room I've ever stayed at a hotel. Unfortunately since we had just travelled from a different continent and were looking for a temporary stay while we look for an apartment had a lot of luggage. With 1 double bed and 1 so-called twin and with 3 people in the room it was like canned sardines. Some other rooms looked slightly bigger but for some reason we ended up with the tiniest. Luckily it was ground floor so I was spared the weight lifting. Last 2 nights the HVAC system did not work (had to manually reduce the mechanical heater to cool the room down) No microwave in the room and staff would not replenish the coffee/sugar etc without being asked. Never got extra pillow/comforter either even after asking. I have lived in all sorts of hotels/motels and in a few countries as well but this was literally the most claustrophobic experience of my life. For 100+ EUR per day I do expect a slightly bigger room. This is not central London or Tokyo

Noce stay
My stay was generally good. The room was very clean but unfortunately my particular room smelt of acetone, perhaps from a previous guest. The shower could've have been a bit warmer bit the flow of water was very good.You just need to watch out for the leathal stairs.

Lovely place but not a lot around the area to do
Good room and good facilities. The local area doesn't have a lot to offer so be prepared to check in and then head back into town if you want an evening out.

It is only basic rooms behind a cafe - which did not serve breakfast and was not open when I arrived. Free WiFi was terrible - did not work where the desk in the room was

Not too far from city centre. Room and bathroom are small but it has everything I needed. The downside was I had to check-out at 10am but there's no luggage storage facilities.
