First time there and let's admit - perhaps not the last time.
As hotel is very interesting starting to visual look inside (style and paintings), finishing with rooms - not numbered, but named (!).
Very well equipped rooms.
Great bed ensuring strong sleep.
Can recommend for romantic feeling as well.
There's free car parking in the hotel yard. Still it's old city and narrow roads, narrow entrance in the parking, too.
Restaurant on second floor offers food for good quality in the daytime and evening, still I was not happy with breakfast which has been served after request of special menu - it took very long time which was not acceptable during morning hurry. Besides almost no taste of scrambled eggs there. Still good crepes with curd I recommend for everyone.

We stayed at the Shakespeare Hotel for two nights in August. There is much to recommend the hotel, though I think the hotel's TA ratings are a bit inflated.

On the positive side, the hotel is in an excellent location -- near numerous restaurants, the cathedral and other important sites, but far enough away to be quiet. There is parking onsite, which is much appreciated. Breakfasts are tasty, and served in the bright and charming dining room/bar. Food service was friendly and eager to please.

On the negative side, the rooms are small and a bit run down. The carpets were worn and the bed a bit hard. Our room featured a shower only with modest water pressure, as wells as worn-out towels. There is no lobby or public areas to speak of. Service is friendly and accommodating but sporadic -- the hotel seems a bit understaffed.

All in all I would recommend the property, but beware that the TA rating seems a bit high for what you get.

We spent a long weekend in the hotel and really enjoyed it. Shakespeare Hotel is charmingly old fashioned and the rooms all different (we stayed in Voltaic and Rousseau ). The very delicious breakfast was chosen from ala carte and there were many excellent alternatives. The hotel is in a very good location in the old town but however the street was quiet. We warmly recommend this hotel.

We enjoyed this hotel. It was fun and classy! The rooms are comfortable and most of the staff were very helpful. It is located in the old town right next to all the main sights! It has parking which was very convienent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the view of the crosses.
