We stayed for 2 nights, close to everthing central on foot as we arrived by train. The apartment was spacious and we were a group of 3 adults and 2 teenagers. Comfortable stay a home away from home atmosphere, we had 2 TVs so there was not fighting for the remote especially with teenagers. Would definately stay again!!

Very nice and spacious room. Staff is very kind. Location is close to the station and convenient. It's not in the fancy area but this residence were so nice. I recommend. 駅近くでとても便利な場所にありました。スタッフの皆さんも何より親切で早めにチェックインさせてくれました。また部屋が広い!ゆっくりできました。近くにいくつか手頃なトラットリアもあります。ゴージャスエリアではなく、手頃な宿が並ぶ駅近のエリアにひっそりとあるのですが、そこが気にならない方にはお得度が高いです。とても良い宿でした。

So friendly and lovely, this place is like a home away from home, set in tone by the owner and her husband. At breakfast on Sunday, she had three home made cakes and upon checkout showed us pictures of her family.

This is a little gem. Hidden down a private driveway the hotel is a real joy. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was split level with the bedroom on a mezzanine floor and the sleep quality was excellent. Breakfast was a more than adequate buffet. Within easy walking distance of main rail station and all the attractions of... More

We loved their breakfast (nice selection), very nice coffee. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was a bit too warm, but comfy, with a kitchen. Best value... More

We chose this hotel because my fiancee' had previously stayed here while she studied abroad during college. The apartment style rooms were very large and clean. There was a nice kitchen available in the room if needed. The bed was comfortable and the night was very quiet. The breakfast offered many options and we both thought it was delicious. We... More
