The Schlossle is a very comfortable and cozy hotel, well placed for the old town sights and good value for money. It may not have the facilities of more modern hotels, but if you're looking for somewhere that is relaxed and welcoming, this fits the bill nicely.
We ordered a hotel transfer after reading that taxis could be a bit hit and miss, and were happy to pay the 16 euros to know that we didn't have any hassle on arrival. However, having seen others get to the hotel by taxi without any problem, I'd say that you can save 11 euros by taking a taxi.
Check in was efficient, with a welcoming glass of juice. All staff speak excellent English, and are very attentive without being in your face. For example, take a seat by the open fire in reception and someone will immediately come to make sure there are enough logs on it.
Our room was up a circular flight of stone stairs which wasn't the easiest to navigate, so ask for a ground floor room if you have weak knees.
The only slight negative for me is that we found the restaurant a little pretentious - high prices and an attempt at haute cuisine which seemed somewhat out of place. Accordingly, we didn't eat there, preferring instead to sample the abundance of good quality restaurants in the old town. If you like Italian food, take a tip and find Controvento in Katariina kaik (St Katherine's passage, off Vene), conveniently a stone's throw from the hotel.
