A quirky and fun option
This is not so much a hotel as a guesthouse-hotel. There are only 7 rooms. I never saw anybody else except the receptionist, who also did the breakfasts. It is in a very nice and quiet location, less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. The room itself is very interestingly decorated - some thought and attention has gone into it. It was all very clean and comfortable - although my one gripe was that I thought the bed was a bit cheap, not necessarily all that robust. The toilet is semi open plan in the room, so if you are sharing a room with someone be prepared for that. The sole member of staff I saw was very good, helpful and accommodating. I'd recommend this place if you're looking for something a bit different.

Rooms are small and there is no separation between the toilet and the bedroom. It was also cold in the room and they only us an electrical radiator. It is very overpriced for what it offers.

Funky modern B&B with excellent breakfast
It is difficult to rate this hotel which is more and upmarket bed and breakfast than a proper hotel. The lady who takes care of the hotel - I think called Anja - was amazing and did everything to make our stay super comfortable. She even brought me an extra duvet at midnight as the duvets are quite small and I wanted an extra one. Plus she brought me a big bottle of sparkling water for free. I had the largest room - I was told - on fourth floor with no lift. Anja offered to carry the suitcases up and down the stairs which was great but slightly awkward. The beds are queen size not king size so be aware and most importantly there is no AC. I slept with the window open but then got woken up by the noise and trembling from the trams nearby. But the rooms are funky, modern, the bathroom great (mine was in separate floor!). Breakfast was outstanding and at 15 eur exceptionally good value. All in all great for a private trip but if you are on business and want full amenities that come from a proper hotel you may want to choose a bigger place suited for business travelers. The AC is probably the one big minus. The fabukous proprietor the big plus.
