    Convenient and adequate.

    The location is great, right in the old town. The room was small but adequate with all the quaint features I was expecting. However there was no drinking water in the rooms and although I could see a wifi connection I was told I couldn't have the password. There is no storage in the room so it wouldn't be suitable for a longer stay. The bed was on the firm end of comfortable for me.

  • 2.0.Poor

    This property was dirty. The bed linen gave me itchy ness and the worst was there was no hot water. They use a solar without electrical back up. The next day wanted to change room but their hot shower was the same. They seem to encourage the patron with cold blasting showers! Not even a shower cap provided, it was devastating as I went to the salon!

    Well designed central hotel.

    Beautiful, centrally located hotel. Well designed. Bed a little hard, but lived the wooden facades etc. Was disappointed than our reservation included breakfast but the hotel doesn't do breakfast?! We checked out at 11am butthere was no one in reception at all to give key too,which was a little odd.

    Nicely decorated hotel with friendly staff

    A very nicely decorated hotel which gives a relaxing atmosphere. The staff are also very nice and the breakfast is very delicious. The only down point is thay the room is a bit small and it is rather noisy in the morning in our attic room. Maybe other rooms would be more quiet.
