This was the smallest double room I've seen in my life. Extremely small, especially for two. Very poor rooms, bathroom door would not close properly, no space for luggage...Staff was very friendly and helpful though. Location is great - a bit far from the city center and right next to the park. Too expensive for that kind of room. Wouldn't... More

There was even the residue of someone's nose on the wall. The bathroom was a joke. It appeared to be a cupboard! The area that you... More

Safe and charming neighbourhood. Clean and comfortable hotel with a lovely garden. Overpriced breakfast, but other than that the hotel was perfect. Tram is so close, and can walk to almost every attraction in town.
