Very good 8.0
Old town, great location.
The room was just fine, the only problem was it was too hot and the noise from right behind the room was unbearable around the clock from a highway there, so keeping a window open was out of the question. Front desk helpful and friendly and breakfast fantastic. Great location.

Reception staff unprofessional and lacking basic friendliness.

Tiny rooms
We tried 3 different rooms all of which were tiny.Hotel doesn't justify its (claimed) 3* status.Hotel was on the edge of the Old Town. Restaurant was closed during our stay.

Fair 4.0
Booked Economy double room, previously advised hotel of late check in. On arrival, after midnight room allocated was a twin room with 2 beds and virtually nothing else or any other space in the room. The reception had no other room available so we suffered the first night. Next morning we again requested a change of room and we were offered a larger room with a supplement of 10 euros per night extra. We accepted the change because it was totally impossible to continue in the original room (Room 105). The other negative feedback relates to the total inflexibility of the staff in the breakfast room and their dreadful attitude. The Reception staff were fine and helpful so clearly the problem with this hotel is lack and invisibility of management. Overall, very poor value and we won’t be staying here again.

Great location for an affordable hotel
The hotel is in a great location and perfectly adequate although our room was very, very small. However, I would stay again as it was very clean and due to the location in the old town.

Location, location!!!
The Rixwell Old Town Hotel was absolutely terrific. We walked there from the ferry dock, were able to keep our luggage safely locked in their storage area before check-in and loved that it was so affordable yet inside the old city walls. Their breakfast buffet was wonderful, our room, while small, was more than adequate and just a perfect location.

Hotel is at top end of old town, in a nice quiet area but walkable to all of old town. . I requested a room with a double bed but was given a twin, as i was travelling solo this was not a major problem. The room was nice and tidy but for me it was very hot.The breakfast was buffet style with plenty of things available to suit all. Free WiFi worked fine.
