The room was located on 2nd or 3rd floor in the house in the back and rather large. The house doesn't look very beautiful on the outside or in the staircases, but the room I had was really nice. The room seemed to be newly renovated and refurbished as well as being extremely clean. The windows could be opened towards the garden to let in some fresh air if it was too warm, and also the heating could be dialed down if needed. During the day the two windows let in the sun and if open, also some birds singing. The double bed was on the hard side, but I'm used to that since they are bought to accustom a normal sized man and not a smallish woman - so for me most beds are hard. Pillows, blankets and all the rest was nice, clean and all in order.
The breakfast is downstairs in the front room towards the street and is as expected, nothing really fancy but gets you going for the day of business meetings. For me the most important is orange juice, black tea and some bread and that was all there.
This is an entirely adequate hotel for business travelers and it was extremely clean with a good wifi internet connection (get info from the front desk). For a one-night stay I didn't check out any entertainment, access to fitness etc. The hotel is located on walking distance from the University department I was visiting, so for my purposes it was excellent.
