4/5 Good

Breakfree is very central and perfectly located for walking the city. It has a decent place to eat a quick no fuss dinner or grab a beer. The breakfast buffet is very good for the price. The rooms are very small but you can read the size when you book online. Be aware that the cheapest have no windows. The bathrooms in the expensive rooms are normal hotel standart, but the rest are a very clever frosted glass unit in the corner of the room. It has everything you need - but best if you travel with someone you know really well as there is no sound privacy... and only frosted glass. The bed was terriffic. It is just old enough NOT to have built in USB ports which would have been nice. You get what you pay for in a very clever micro room style. View and window size is relative to the price I seem to have worked out. We had office windows 5 m away from our 4th floor window. Bed is high to accommodate luggage underneath. If you need to get up at night and dont want to crawl over your partner, go for a room where you can get in and out of bed from both sides - not one where the bed has walls on 3 sides.
