My friends stayed at this hotel last winter after staying at two other places and being miserable. And they loved it. Huge rooms (one with a piano), no elevator, no phone or TV or internet or anything but old wooden beams, old granny furniture and tiled floors that look like they’ve been around for a few centuries. No breakfast (you’re near countless cafés though). Doubles from €55, triples and quads available under €90. You can look at each room on their website. Payment in cash or traveler’s checks only.
