Historic building in a perfect location. Friendly staff and a great value. At the delicious buffet breakfast, I enjoyed looking out of the huge windows to the lovely park in front of the hotel.

Within walking distance.
Just need a room for the night. Hopefully one near the old town. Perfect. Not new hotel, but clean and practical. Definitely within walking distance of the main old town. If you are coming by train - may be worth a taxi ride.

2/10 Poor

Tired hotel, and "we-don't-care" service
The hotel is perfectly livable but could use a refresh. Flooring, furniture, bathrooms all look like they've been around the block a few times. Our room also had that distinct smell of smoking once having been allowed. But here's where we got screwed. Checked into our Premium room, with a clearly pregnant wife and a 5 year-old. It was a Saturday. Around midnight music started being audible, and from 1am the level of noise woke us all up. This was coming from a nightclub situated in the same building. Went downstairs and told I couldn't sleep. "Is it because of the music?" was the reply. WHO ACCOMMODATES A FAMILY TO SLEEP ON TOP OF A NIGHTCLUB, KNOWINGLY? We got a new room which was smaller. In the morning I was charged for the Premium one we couldn't sleep in. I complained and left my email address, heard nothing back. Go at your own risk.

Everything was generally fine. The circumstance I liked the most was the location of the hotel. The city center is really few meters away. As ethnic Russian, I also enjoyed the presence of the monument of Barclay de Tolly* in front of the hotel :). Staff at the reception was friendly, breakfast (especially porrige) was delicious, beds were comfortable, ventilation quiet. The hotel itself is situated in a historical building, what makes a cozy 'old-fashioned' atmosphere. The only negative remark I would have concerns a bit untidy water tap at the bathroom. And I also should say that the parking meter in the hotel's patio is quite small (up to three cars may be safely parked). To summarize, the hotel is worth its money and is worth staying in. __________ *Russian military commander of German-Scottish origin, one of the heads of Russian army during the Napoleon wars in the 19th century.
