These beds are soooo nice. If you're into plush, sinking feeling beds, these are it. Love the high windows and the showers. The host Andrej was very accommodating and helpful.

It’s nice place well designed and equipped, the stuff are very nice and easy going. However the building is old, needs a lot fix here and there. It would be nice to have TV and elevator.

Really enjoyed my first staycation at The Annex Hotel. Even under covid protocols the room was spacious, bright, clean, but most of all cozy. Staff was great. And I was even lucky enough to comp a late check out! If anything, I'd stay here again for my next staycation!
