Stayed for 8 nights in Aug 2014. We did extensive research when booking this hotel and had realistic expectations about what we had chosen. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is very comfortable and represents good value for money.
The room is a good size by European standards, the bed is comfortable with quality linen and a well appointed bathroom. We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the courtyard, and it was very quiet - no street noise at all. The rooms that face the street would be noisier as the street is quite busy, day and night. The air conditioning provided a welcome relief from the heat outside after a long day of sightseeing.
The included breakfast is perfect for a quick start to the day - self serve fresh pastries, biscuits and fresh fruit, along with fresh coffee made and served to your table either inside, or outside on the small terrace.
The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. All have excellent language skills (many are multi-lingual).
The owner probably needs to spend a little time on maintenance to keep the property at standard. We couldn't use our room safe as it was locked (presumably not left open by a previous occupant), and the air conditioning leaked water onto the floor near the door. We reported both issues on the first day, but heard no more about it. We overcame the safe issue by locking our valuables in our suitcases. The water on the floor was near the door didn't pose a huge problem to us, but it is something that should be dealt with.
Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel based on location alone. Many attractions are within a 10 minute walk and it is close to a metro for everything else.
