It is a lovely, well decorated hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. However! My room was facing the street, which seemed quiet in the evening, but I shot all windows anyway. At exactly 6 am I was woken up by very noisy trucks unloading goods for the Spar supermarket across the road! This took over an hour so I couldn't sleep anymore (even with all windows shut). At 7 am I called the reception and asked for another room, which they fortunately had (from 9 am). The receptionist was friendly and helpful, explaining to me that what the supermarket is doing this almost every morning (including weekends!) despite local law against making noise before 7 am. The hotel has apparently complained about this almost 50 times this year, but with no result. When I asked the receptionist why they don't call police or sue the Spar, as this could cause the hotel go out of business, he just didn't seem to understand. So do not stay there unless you are 1) planning to get up at 6 am, 2) the hotel can guarantee to you that they have seriously addressed the problem, or 3) you can be sure your room faces the courtyard.
