Bavaria is a very friendly and small hostel type place, IIt is all on one floor so I wouldn't classify it as a real hotel.
If you have seen the website just remember, like so many promotional tools, it is a website intended to promote!
The people on reception are lovely and helpful the slightly crazy french bulldog is very entertaining and you will feel safe. All great things.
For the most part it does the job. It is airy, bright and pleasant and the single room I stayed in no. 5, is spacious and has a sink.
Breakfast although adequate ( there are cereals and bread) is not a breakfast for those of us who enjoy it as a true relaxing affair, you will be taking it with up to three others on your small table and the only fresh thing is the bread! The lady who clears things away during the sitting is also very noisy and slightly grumpy...
So if you want a better one I suggest getting fresh pastries at the Café Del Albizi down the road.
The major downside is definately the bathrooms, if you are unfortunate enough to not have ensuite. There are two and neither are conveniently located for shared bathrooms.
One, the largest is at the back of the breakfast room of all places and the other is literally a cube at the end of a long corridor, which is a pain at night as it is dark and noisy if you are anywhere near its vicinity.
So Bavaria all in all is very charming and economical, it's a great location just be warned it's closer to a hostel and it has it's quirks!
