    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Extremely run down does not look like the pictures on the website. Damp on the walls. We stayed in room 2B the lamp was broken the walls were dirty, the sink was chipped and my partner woke up with bites from what ever insect was in the room.

    Charming hotel away from tourist crowds

    Lovely hotel, small and quiet. Breakfast was good value for 15 euros. The floor boards creaked a lot from other guests but it was no big deal. The hotel has lots of character and charm hence the name

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    The main entrance is very nice, but might be just that. The hotel is very old with a sense of low maintenance and refurbishment. Rooms are spacious but noisy when you walk through the wood old floors.

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    The pictures do not tell the true story. Truthfully things are a bit shabbier than illustrated. Our room was large which was great but the beds weren’t that comfortable and the pillows were horrible. Breakfast was good but on our second day it wasn’t even ready until after 9 o’clock with no explanation or apology. Location near the tram stop was a real plus
