Hôtel Gutenberg Review

In a recently renovated 250-year-old mansion just off Place Gutenberg, this budget-priced urban hotel has colorful, modernized rooms with charming highlights from the past. Little fifth-floor lofts reveal skylights and timbered ceilings, while air-conditioning allows you to close the windows if the street noise gets to be too much. The delightful breakfast room is inviting but sometimes a little crowded, so consider an early start or be prepared to wait for (or share) a table. The English-speaking staff is friendly, and the quaint location is only a few blocks from the cathedral.

    Hôtel Gutenberg Review

    We were very happy with this hotel. We requested a room away from the night club which is across the side street - we had read about the night club on Trip Advisor. We had no view at all, but we were not traveling to stay in the hotel.

    There was a laundry a couple streets away which helped - as no laundry service is at the hotel.

    Initially we were not excited about the 10 euro breakfast, but soon realized that if one wants several cups of coffee in the morning, one's best bet is to take the breakfast. You can also get some bread, meat, cheese, fruit and yogurt, too.

    All the front desk folks were very friendly and polite. We didn't request much other than wake up calls, a taxi and one night's dinner reservation.

    Our room was reasonable sized and the beds comfortable. There is no wifi, but a hardwired internet service which was not located at the desk - which made it a bit of a challenge. But, I was happy with the hard wire for uploading some photographs.

    All in all, I was pleased and would go back again.
