Stayed here for one night, in the library suite.
Booked it via groupon few months in advance. Already when booking we have informed the hotel that we would be travelling with little kid and need a baby cot in the room. Day before our arrival I called the hotel to make sure the cot will be ready upon our arrival, and only then was informed that they couldn't provide us with one, as they didn't have them. I don't understand why weren't we informed about it earlier...
Room was 4m x 3m sleeping part (~1m space left between the bed and the walls), plus bathroom part. Our bed linien was clean and we did not have any bedbugs. The room was also clean, and we did have curtains in the windows (and yes, bars on them, but we did not expect anything else, since this is clearly advertised on hotel's website).
Sink with mirror was located in the narrow part of the room behind the bathroom.
Bathroom - toiled + shower - was micro-size, and not really well designed, so accessing the shower was a bit of a challenge. It was not the cleanest bathroom ever - stains on the walls, plus someone's hair in the shower. And air ventilation was not working. Though, the walls of the bathroom were so badly done, and doors so badly fitted, that the air was easily circulating between the bathroom and the room. So maybe someone decided that air ventillation is not needed?
No wardrobe in the room, only coat hanger.
Rooms are rather noisy - we could hear all the sounds coming from the corridor and from the street.
Breakfast is supposed to be served tiil 11:00. We arrived at 10:30 and found only milk, cornflakes, one slice of bread and few slices of cheese left on the buffet. And no coffee left in the coffee machine. So it seems it's rather "first come first served" than "served till 11:00" style (I did not expect buffet to be refilled till 11:00, but I did hope to be asked if we wanted anything else than cornflakes).
No lift available, so don't bring heavy luggage :-)
Overall - it's original place to stay, but hostel not hotel quality.
