As we were late night arrivals in a new city we found the service and... More

Me, my friend and her mother stayed at llkay Hotel for one night. The room was spacious and comfortable even for three people. Cozy lounge at the front desk for the guests to sit. The breakfast served was healthy and with different variety. Hotel staff are friendly and very helpful. Excellent job meric!

Basic hotel in a good location for the old section of Europe. Staff are very friendly. They have an actual honey comb at the breakfast table which really amused me =) And loads of travel agencies around to plan tours or the next leg of your journey

The room was small but very clean and was prepared daily. The breakfast was good with multiple choices. The air-conditioning in the rooms... More
