Location is drop dead! I had a superior room with a view of the main square over the Christmas market. My room had two nice windows overlooking the market, it was very large and comfortable. I experienced no problems with anything working in the room. It was very clean.
The desk staff was helpful and answered questions I had regarding restaurants and sightseeing information. All in all, my stay was wonderful.

The room we stayed in was 18m2 which was somewhat snug but laid out in such a way as to not feel too cramped, a firm twin mattress bed and surprisingly quiet location yielded restful sleep.
There was no kettle in the room but tea and coffee were available in reception for no charge along with free rolls and jam if you couldn’t face the excellent full buffet breakfast.
In the event that we ever return for the Christmas markets, this will be our first choice.

A lovely family run hotel, in the Old Town within easy walking distance of shops, Christmas markets and restaurants. The hotel is clean, friendly and ideally located. Easy transport links close by for the airport and other destinations.
We were coming for the Christmas Markets so the location was good. Easy 5 minute walk. If you’re coming from the airport via public transit it can be a bit trickier to get to with a ten minute walk through the cobbled streets and luggage. We stayed in the newer area of the hotel but did have breakfast in the older part one morning which was nice.
Lovely touch of receiving Christmas bags with candies and a cookie cutter upon our departure. They also had mulled wine out every evening which was a nice thing and also good to make it social.
