I was very kindly upgraded by hotel (as a result of a birthday celebration) and this led to the suite! Though it had minimal lighting (perhaps due to restrictions by being a loft conversion?) it was large and full of character. The staff were helpful in trying to make the lighting better, albeit with no success, and also on check-in. Check-out was prompt. It may help to have curtain on outside and a sliding window as it was difficult to open the curtain fully due to the interfering beams and the other window was facing the brick wall of the new building. May help to have more sockets so that additional free-standing lamps can be made available. These are small issues though as we use the hotel as a base and I for one don't read much, and it is branded as a historic hotel. (There was a small airy sitting area in the corridor outside).
We didn't have breakfast as the food (and beer!) from night before filled us up but suggest that the price could have been reduced to attract us.
Fantastic location near squares having good bars/restaurants.
May be useful on website to say how to get to hotel from nearest tram / bus stops. I could not spot this but eventually managed to glean that Tram no 1 from Korenmarkt was nearest and it was a straightforward 5-10 min walk to it
