We stayed for many times now in Hotel Kenrock and the price-performance ratio is very good. The room service is fast and friendly, the shower mostly hot and the rooms are clean. I feel save there and many restaurants and bar are within walking distance. So I can definitely recommend this place!!

The staff is very friendly, nice people, and the service is improving, wireless is there, more or less. The hotel is, first of all, very safe, clean, the rooms are ok,... More

Most people do not get to find this hotel, but it is a wonderful one not need to go to those backpackers...Kenrock has self contained clean rooms, helpful staff, and most of all the owner is a gentle kind person who goes out of his way to make costumers comfortable and happy at his hotel.
