Pros: 1. The hotel is very close to the most of places of interest and to the main railway station; 2. Rather big room - there's two windows, a table and enough space to keep your belongings and luggage; but I don't think a wardrobe is a good idea for such a room, I'd prefer having a big clothes hanger; 3. Excellent view out of window - cobbled street, buildings; 4. Interesting design of the common premises. Summary: the hotel is not bad, but I shall be looking for something else for the next time (see the cons part).
Cons: 1. There's a bar nearby, and on the night from Saturday to Sunday I couldn't sleep 'cos of loud music from it. Closing the windows wouldn't help. The staff offers earplugs (one can find them in the room and at reception), but you cannot use them, if you want to hear the alarm-clock in the morning (strange enough, the night from Friday to Saturday was great and quiet, no music at all). 2. The free coffee machine on the second floor was out of order. 3. The key-cards were a pain: two times we had to call the staff and they let us in. Later we were given a third key-card, but it didn't work properly either.
