A cozy hotel, very centrally located in the old city. However, the hotel is worn and a bit of renovation would not hurt. The breakfast is a simple buffet, type two kinds of bread, cheese, ham, yogurt, eggs, bacon and coffee. Restaurant staff are very nice and helpful. The same can not be said of all the front desk staff....

Unfortunately there were a lot of bed bugs in the basement floor room I stayed in. I visited there in October 2016. I hope they have done something about that problem. Be careful and check the room closely before staying. Otherwise the hotel was ok.

The hotel is in a great location in the Old Town. We were a group occupying 3 basement rooms. Lots of stairs to cope with to access the rooms. The rooms were very small and very warm. There was no air conditioning. The hotel seemed unable to control the heating so some of our party moved room. This didn't really...

We stayed one night in a double room in the basement. The room itself was nice, however to reach it from the reception you need to make your way through what resembles a labyrinth and a few tricky flights of stairs. The breakfast selection was pretty nice, but the seating was rather inconvenient with there only being several very large...

The only good point of this hotel is the location. The receptionist was useless and not helpful at all. We had to carry our luggage ourselves as nobody was here to help or we had to wait 40 min and the stairs are really steep and narrow. The room quality was poor regarding the price. The bathroom was sticking and...

Cosy and nice hotel in the old city. your room can be hard to locate as they are placed in different levels, around corners up and down steps. Gives the place a medieval feel. Nice restaurant attached. Hard to get wi-fi signal in the room due to very thick walls.

For my opinion, nice place. Mace-like midevil building where you expect to see some ghosts. Only minus is that you cannot turn-off the birds at the morning 😁. Brekkie is enough for us, but as finnish as we are coffee cup sizes could be bigger, 90ml of coffee, really? Anyhow we have been enjoying the place.
