I choose this hotel very quickly, needing a place to stay after a last minute change in plans. The location of the hotel was terrific, within the city walls and on a small street without much traffic. My husband and I enjoyed using the bikes that were included in the room price. All in all, for choosing this hotel with very little research, I was quite happy.
There were a few small issues: Our room was on the same floor as the patio where breakfast was served. In the evening this patio was used for a reception, and there was quite a lot of cigarette smoke wafting down the hall, and we could smell it in our room. While it was not a big enough problem to have complained and gotten our room changed, I do think that if I were going to book a room at this hotel in the future, I'd ask to be located farther away from the patio area.
Comparing our room to the images on the hotel's web site, I think that the room we stayed in was not as nice as what is represented on the web site. In other words, I was disappointed in the overall room quality - just a little shabbier than I expected.
