Great location!
Rooms were clean, coffee & pour over for daily use, small kitchen sink & utensils if needed. the onsite restaurant had great food for all meals, great drinks, very friendly staff, highly recommend this place. LIked that it’s not a big touristy hotel & is down to earth where you get a feel for the local culture.
