    Overall a good stay. Clean and convenient though fairly basic. Staff was helpful. Bed not the most comfortable.

    Great!

    Nice apartments style rooms with a very clean modern kitchen with all facilities. We left a big box of English tea bags and milk for other guests but stick a few essentials in your case to save having to buy when your there. Perfect location

    good location - good for the price

    It’s not a fancy place but it’s good for the money. And also quite conveniently located.

    Convenient, convenient, convenient.

    Immaculately clean, attention to details, fantastic location just outside of Old Town. Everything within walking distance. Front desk extremely helpful and nice when we had questions about the surrounding area. Compact space with plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the shower. Bed was comfortable, I wasn't a fan of the pillows, my wife didn't mind them (personal preferences). Construction on the exterior of the building right by our window was the only thing keeping me from giving this place a perfect score. We were instructed to not turn on the A/C due to the construction, and it was quite warm in the small room while my wife was blow drying and flat ironing her hair (and to be fair, I think it was a bit warmer than usual for this time of year here). We did open the windows, but they were soon taped shut so we could not open them any more. Construction begins at 7am, which put any ideas of sleeping in "to rest." No construction on the weekend. For those light sleepers, like myself, the local train runs all night and our room fronted the road in which the train ran, though less often after midnight. Earplugs were provided (one of the many "attention to details."), which don't do me any good Overall a fantastic stay, I just could've done with less noise as I am a VERY light sleeper.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Although we knew there was no elevator it should be made clearer that the hotel rooms are only on the top two floors. We climbed 72 stairs several times each day. Unfortunately the city decided to work on the tram tracts outside our side of the building each night we were there. The noise was deafening and we were awake all night for both nights. The room was lovely and the staff very courteous but the experience was not positive.

  • 6.0.Good

    Pros: Good location. All main attractions within walking distance. Good size room. Kitchen area and daily maid service. Modern clean bathroom. Air conditioning unit. Cons: Our room was next to main road, and trams run all night, you literally feel the building vibrate as they pass, hence not suitable for light sleepers. No lift and unsuitable for any person who struggles with stairs, especially when carrying luggage. Television did not work, informed reception but they did not resolve. No maid service on last day of stay, had to ask reception for clean towels, luckily caught them before they close reception at 5pm. Wood block flooring in room was all loose underfoot and squeaking when walked on, however clean so not really an issue.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We had a very nice stay at Novum House in the 1 bed suite. Unfortunately the stove was in the process of being replaced which reduced the in room facilities. In terms of floor space, I'm unclear if this is much larger than the studio rooms (simply from looking at pictures). The bathroom was lovely, with plenty of in-room amenities such as hairdryer, shampoo, shaving kit. Check-in from 2pm and the reception very kindly held our bags for an hour until we could access our room. Check-out from 12pm (or late check-out 4pm) and again very kindly held bags until reception closed at 6pm. We found the bedroom a little disappointing; very narrow space around the bed, very hard mattress & curtains that covered the radiator and prevented the room warming up. This wouldn't deter a stay, however I would recommend a change of curtains as we ended up folding these up as it was impossible to sleep in the cold room otherwise.
