The hotel staff were friendly with good English. The desk was manned 24hrs. When asked they provided good information and directions for restuarants. Breakfast is basic European fare - rolls, croissant, scrambled eggs, tea, coffee etc. Wi-fi was good in the rooms. I had a 3rd floor room overlooking the courtyard. Only downside was occasional stale smoke from below. I... More

Let me begin by saying that the staff was excellent. I arrived late at night and the hotel was already locked. I rang the bell and the hotel clerk let me in. It was good to know that the entrance to the hotel was secure. The clerk was pleasant and helpful despite the fact that it was 1:00 a.m. When... More

Our room (for 3 people) was at first floor next to terrace (it is the smoking place with windowed elevator). In hotel we spend 2 nights and... More

The hotel is nice, if you are not demanding much. The best that we got from it is a free welcome drink fortunately in the center direction named Lado. This was wonderful charming place with a live jazz music and great food and in addition extremely pleasant stuff. The breakfast is nothing special..there is no any vegetables and natural yogurts..but... More

I stayed in that hotel twice. In 2010 I got a big, nice, clean, bright room with a double bed, and I thought it was a standard. In 2013 I booked a room with a double bed (it was explicitly stated in the confirmation I got: "a marriage bed"). Upon coming to the hotel with my husband we were located... More
