I was on the first floor in a king bedroom and it was beautiful and spacious with a modern bathroom. The only downside was that there was no TV and the noise from the restaurant below was a bit loud but not too bothersome for me.

Perfect location and spacious room.

Beautiful and very spacious room, though up three flights of steep stairs. No reception on site, so can't easily get little things dealt with (eg the television didn't work, no cleaner for the three days we were there, and very little complimentary tea and coffee). But that is outweighed by the perfect location, the lovely room, and very reasonable price. If you are fit and don't worry about details, very highly recommended.

Location was outstanding. Loved the quirky loft character of the room. The problem however was the stairs (no lift option) - 95 stairs to get to our room, the last 10 of which are a narrow spiral staircase with no handrail. If you are unfit, have knee issues etc, or have a suitcase over 15kg, then you will likely struggle. I believe “the stairs” should have been mentioned in the hotel description.

My room was cute but on the 4th floor, with no lift I had to carry my luggage up 4 flights of stairs plus a very narrow spiral staircase right at the end to actually access my room. I was actually concerned about doing an injury. It was also a very warm day, the room had 2 fans, one which did not work at all and another that didn’t do much. No refrigerator, so the water I had ended up more than room temperature quickly. Room was also an awkward shape, toilet and bathroom sink required ducking down to use. However, the linen was lovely, and a very comfortable bed. Location was pretty good but probably wouldn’t stay again.

The room we stayed in was really unique, it was the rooftop of an old building with views of the churhes and towers. It was also located in the center so most sights were within minutes of walking distance. Yet there are problems with the room too. First of all the room can be accessed via steep stairs that take you up to fourth floor. So if you have heavy luggage, reconsider. Second thing is, because of the roof structure in some parts of the room the ceiling is too low. I am only 160 cm and yet I had to bend over to use the toilet. So looking back I would stay at another place next time.
