I really wanted to love this charming converted convent but... well fortunately I travel with an eye mask as well as industrial-strength earplugs... but even those earplugs couldn't drown out a busker who played amplified music right outside until 2330 or a noisy bunch of athletes parading by outside before 0600. It also seems unfathomable the hotel doesn't have blackout curtains as the room is filled with light all night long. Aside from that, the mattress was uncomfortable and when showering at 0615 the inconsistent hot water kept switching from cool to extremely hot every 20 seconds. Also as a previous reviewer noted: why isn't there any chair, even a small one, in the room?

An uninspiring Soviet-style breakfast buffet is served at the other convent hotel next door. The hot items (eggs, sausage, porridge) appeared revolting but the cold items (salads, breads, muesli) were acceptable. Coffee and hot water from the machine were barely warm. Service was sullen.

On the positive side, I did note at least six power outlets for charging all your devices in the room and all the staff are quite charming. And the location is utterly fantastic, despite the difficulty you might encounter in attempting to spend time observing the scene outside your windows because in some rooms you can't really position yourself due to lack of space to properly look out the window.

So perhaps while you are meant to suffer like a nun at a property like this, for €70 this seemed too precious, despite how quaint and charming the property might be.

The good: Most important the apartment was clean and safe. The shower had lots of water and was hot. The internet is good and there is one English TV channel, BBC. The location is in the middle of the old town, and is close to public transportation. The desk clerks were ok and speak good English but are not overly helpful. The breakfast was very good. The building is a quaint a very old hotel. The room is advertised as small, but it was not as small as I expected.

The bad: The street lights are very bright outside the window and the pull down shade is thin so the room is quite bright when you are trying to sleep. It was cold outside, and I turned the heat all the way down, but the room remained to warm Coupling this with a bed and pillow that were not particularly comfortable, I slept very poorly, and sleep is the main reason I get a hotel room. Because the room stays so light at night I would not stay here again.
There is no chair in the room, I think there is room for a small chair and it would be convenient.

jerusalem atrichoke cream soup, spicy roasted chicken breasts.


Finally I got to hear an old pipe organ concert. It was a shot

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get a room where the street lights shine in your windows.

Stayed one night here on the first floor. The only complaint I have about my whole experience is the lack of curtains in my room. I don't like having someone staring back from across the courtyard when I'm trying to relax!

Otherwise this hotel is in a great location, everywhere I wanted to visit was easily walkable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the wifi was great.

My room was a good size and had everything I needed (except curtains) and I slept well. It was also very clean.

I also enjoyed the complimentary buffet breakfast which is served in the hotel next door.

Overall this was a great stay and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Very clean hotel in excellent part of town, very historical, next to St Peter's church. One thing to warn about is the level of noise at night from outside which made it unbearable on the Friday night (nothing on Saturday remarkably). Good breakfast, would return.

Room Tip: try and get on the top floor (due to noise)
