Clean and modern rooms, very friendly staff, good breakfast. The location is golden with several bars and restaurants nearby, a short walk to Philosopher's Walk and across the bridge to the Old Town. Saturday market right in front of the door.

Great recently-renovated small hotel
Quiet, clean and comfortable, in a very nice old part of town across the river from the university. I am told there is a market on Saturday and Wednesday in the square that the rooms face, so I would expect some early morning noise as that gets set up. Breakfast was excellent, and less than €10.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel was lovely. Our room had a gorgeous view over a lovely open platz (though the bar was a little lively late into a Wednesday night with windows open). The rooms were extremely comfortable, the morning buffet was lovely, and the staff were warm and attentive. The location was easily walkable to old town and the castle for those who don't have issues walking on tour. We also enjoyed a drink in the platz outside the restaurant while there. It's an affordable, lovely place to stay. Thank you Rafaela!
