  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice little hotel in excellent central location.

    Nice clean hotel in a brilliant location short walk from nearest u bahn station and well connected. Also near one of the bus tour stops. I was given a choice of two rooms which I've never experienced before and was a nice little surprise. I chose the bigger room even though I had to use a private external bathroom which was fine. The shower was located in the corner of the room though only separated by tray and shower curtain which was a bit strange but got used to it. Overall a nice stay.

  • 6.0.Good

    Igor was friendly and helpful, relatively cheap and with free WiFi. But I must say that the room was small, not one that was advertised. Outdated, broken tiles, holes in the shower where an old one was before. Our ‘double room’ was 2 single beds put together with 2 single duvets, the light switch/plug socket was loose from the wall, making it dangerous when taking a plug out. The rooms were ‘cleaned’ daily but not once were our sheets changed, or floor swept. Overall, it was okay on a budget but needs the maintenance

    Here for the Cathedral

    The hotel was perfect. No problems whatsoever. Not close, but Walkable to the cathedral. Inexpensive and clean.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Main difference we found was the same price of rooms for different sizes. My double bed room was spacious had an extra small bed and mini table with 2 chairs, plenty of space to walk in around...bed was big and comfy. My friends were in a twin room across the corridor and their room was more than half the size. Still a basic simple room with comfy beds couple of storage for clothes. Just the size difference of rooms for same price is a bit disappointing. Overall a good stay... location is decent 5-10 mins walk from bars restaurants and clubs. 20 mins to centre.

    Das Hotel ist zwar neu modernisiert worden, aber man sieht und richt das es Altbau ist.Im Zimmer Fenster öffnen dann ist es besser. Zimmer im hinteren Teil sehr ruhig, Betten bequem und sauber. Frühstück genug wenn was fehlt,kümmert man sich sofort darum. Das Hotel ist schlicht einfach, günstig,Lage auch gut,zu Fuß einiges erreichbar. Stadtpark, U-Bahn usw.. Wer einfach nur was zum schlafen braucht ohne viel schnick schnack,Frühstück wie zu Hause,sollte dieses Hotel buchen.

    Geen luxe wel net en comfortabel

    Kleinsschalig hotel met ruime 3 persoonskamer. Geen luxe maar wel comfortabel.....ligt op een drukke straat maar je hoort niks van het verkeer. Zeer vriendelijke uibater....op 10 minuten wandelen van het centrum. Ook goede douche.
