A short walk from the city centre, we were pleasantly surprised by the guesthouse upon arrival. All receptionists we encountered were very friendly and professional and were very helpful with requests (hairdryer, printing, phone call, luggage storage etc). The room was very nicely decorated and was very large with a big wall length window and comfy bed. The wallpaper was... More

Just what you want if travelling on a budget and don't intend on spending much time in the hotel. Great location with just a 10min walk to the centre of town and train station. Room had two double beds much to mine and girlfriends delight. The only downside was the bathroom - very small and shower was very weak. Would... More

I had to check twice to be sure that this place is actually the one where I stayed about a week ago (the pictures on this site are COMPLETELY different from our bedroom/bathroom) but, as both the hotel's name and the address are the same as on my confirmation mail, it must be it....

I have nothing bad to say about this Guesthouse, but that it is like a hotel on a decent budget! 5 nights in Room 14, had a couple of double beds with TV for each bed, which can take aux phono for music and USB. This was not expected and was great when coming back to relax and before going... More

Everything you need in the apartment from oven to cooking utensils, phone, tv and instructions on how to work everything. Any problems we had were quickly resolved. They need to provide pot towels and a plug for the sink though.... More
