    Great location, only a 5 minutes walk to the Korenmarkt. I really liked the historical atmosphere of the hotel. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The complementary bathrobe and slippers was very much appreciated! Excellent for the short walk to the shower rooms. Very friendly and professional staff.

    The toilets could have been better, but they were still alright.

    For a budget accommodation this is was perfect- near to the main destinations but in a quiet and unique location. The rooms are basic but have all the amenities you need, including toiletries & robe. We stayed in the cheats rooms, and while the toilet & shower are shared they’re more than adequate.

    The price was much too high given the lack of ammenities. For example, the sink in my room only had a cold water faucet, no hot water.
