Fabulous 8.6 From 91 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice apartments style rooms with a very clean modern kitchen with all facilities. We left a big box of English tea bags and milk for other guests but stick a few essentials in your case to save having to buy when your there. Perfect location

good location - good for the price
It’s not a fancy place but it’s good for the money. And also quite conveniently located.

Convenient, convenient, convenient.
Immaculately clean, attention to details, fantastic location just outside of Old Town. Everything within walking distance. Front desk extremely helpful and nice when we had questions about the surrounding area. Compact space with plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the shower. Bed was comfortable, I wasn't a fan of the pillows, my wife didn't mind them (personal preferences). Construction on the exterior of the building right by our window was the only thing keeping me from giving this place a perfect score. We were instructed to not turn on the A/C due to the construction, and it was quite warm in the small room while my wife was blow drying and flat ironing her hair (and to be fair, I think it was a bit warmer than usual for this time of year here). We did open the windows, but they were soon taped shut so we could not open them any more. Construction begins at 7am, which put any ideas of sleeping in "to rest." No construction on the weekend. For those light sleepers, like myself, the local train runs all night and our room fronted the road in which the train ran, though less often after midnight. Earplugs were provided (one of the many "attention to details."), which don't do me any good Overall a fantastic stay, I just could've done with less noise as I am a VERY light sleeper.

Novum house review.
Really good place location wise. The castle is only a few hundred metres in one directions, the main square is less than 500 meters and the barbican is about the same distance as the castle in the opposite direction. Lots of cheap restraunts nearby. Main downside is the 80 + steps to the reception. Not really suitable for anyone who is not able to climb stairs. There's no tea making facility in the room, only a kitchenette shared with all the other guests. Overall had an excellent stay.

Good visit
Novum house amenities were perfect. No loft, but stairs very manageable. Staff very helpful. Close to old town, great view.
Ruth, us2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Room was smaller than expected but clean and has all the necessities. Was charged for the water that was left in the room which I don't think was very clear, so just watch out for that.
