Great Location, Indifferent Service

Not very friendly service. Cigarette butts outside of rooms on balcony/roof areas at this non-smoking hotel. When staff was asked to clean up butts, they did not seem to care and never did clean them up. Rooms not very clean and one day they just didn't get around to cleaning our room. They never did, although we got fresh towels out of them. On the positive side, great, great location -- easy walking distance to all the best, most scenic parts of the downtown and old town parts of the city. Very narrow stairs to second floor - no elevator -- so there might be mobility problems for some.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Adults might be inclined to bypass the open air living history museum, but don't. This is a must see and it is tremendously well done.

Awful hotel - avoid

Just completed a trip around the Baltic. Stayed in 5 different hotels. This was my only bad experience. And by bad I would say it was very bad. Staff were rude and unhelpful. Room was noisy - barely slept at all. The photo of the outside/door of the hotel is misleading. It's in a grim, grey block, in a badly lit area next to a noisy road. Inside, the rooms are described as well appointed and kept in good condition. I would more accurately describe mine as shabby. Bathroom was very small. Breakfast was bland.
