The hotel is small and quaint, with a tiny elevator rising through the center of an old spiral staircase. The building is 6 floors, although the top floor seems to be a private residence.
The hotel lobby area is very small and is a few steps up from the street, with more steps to the lift foyer. We arrived on a wet and cold day and lugged our bags into the lobby unassisted, realizing quickly that the desk clerk (sole) was also the doorman. He jumped up to assist - once we were inside - and took control of our bags from that point – noting that we would not fit into the elevator within our two medium sized suitcases.
The breakfast area is also small and cozy and served a nice buffet mix of cereals and fruit, meats and cheeses. Basic breakfast fare (eggs & bacon) was available and delivered quickly by smiling staff who seem very rushed.
The hotel has no bar, lounge or restaurant so lunch, afternoon drinks and dinner must be sourced from outside. Given the proximity to a number of good restaurants and the 15 minute walk to the fantastic food stalls and bars of the Nachtsmarket, this was not a major issue.
There is a modern spa area in the basement (no gym) with a sauna and steam room. It was unused during our 5 day stay.
The hotel seems to cater to an older clientele – many of whom were apparently attracted by the proximity to the museum quarter where the hotel is located.
Our room (#50) was spacious, comfortable and dated. The Nespresso machine is a good feature, the room has a smallish flatscreen TV and the bathroom was modern and well equipped. The room was quiet and peaceful, not affected by traffic noise. The hotel, in common with most European buildings, was over-heated, so we liked being able to open our windows at night and get access to some cool fresh air. The room also had a small balcony with a table and two chairs which would be great for a morning coffee.
This is a nice small hotel. It is not 'luxurious' and misses some of the key features that you would expect to find in a SLH property. If you are looking for quiet, cozy and simple then this is a good choice. If you are looking for luxury then go elsewhere.
