8/10 Very good

Good hotel, just a couple of things are different
The hotel staff are fabulous. Friendly, helpful and they checked our luggage and delivered it to our room while we were out. Had issue with our room card and a gentleman from hotel passing by went and got us new ones. Good location in old town square, the offsite parking was a slight issue, 18 euros cheaper than some North American hotels but it was offsite. The room layout was interesting but as older couple we go for a better room so as to enjoy some relaxing in the room during the evening. Our room did not accommodate this, 2 small chairs and a large desk with interesting decor was nice but functionality not there. Now also as we are older having to do the stairs to toilet in the middle of night not a popular concept. We can say the decor is well done, just question it as a hotel. Awesome sleep on super comfortable king bed. We did love the vibrant area around the hotel and excess noise was not a problem. A good stay just a couple issues stoping it from a great stay.

6/10 Good

The hotel and room were beautiful, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, when I used the hair dryer in my room it malfunctioned and overheated. Before I realized what was happening the end of the hair dryer had melted and a large section of my hair was burned. I let the front desk know and although they apologized no compensation was offered. For the price of this hotel I found that a bit frustrating.
