I selected this hotel from a short list of a good dozen alternatives offered by Expedia. It was actually my second choice, as no rooms were available in my first choice. The hotel is perfectly located right in the centre of the old town. It has parking available in an underground garage a few blocks away, which was not really too inconvenient. Inside, the building is a typically old world Euriopean hotel, with a wide staircase and a comfotable lived-in feel. My high feelings of anticipation were somewhat deflated when I got into my room. Entering through a very narrow door, the room was short and very narrow. So was the single bed. I have stayed in more accomodating youth hostels! The bathroom has an incredibly tiny shower - you will bang both elbows on the walls several times every morning, and it leaked prodigious amounts of water onto the bathroom floor. The service was helpful and polite, but you usually had to call for someone's attention to get it. Overall, lots of nice things, but the room itself was just not good enough.
