The only plus point was the garden which they had in the center, where the kids could run around and play. About this also... More

Right by Dal Gate, a stone's throw from the water, this well-run hotel has comfortable, clean rooms arranged around an attractive garden. Staff are helpful and keen to share thoughts on the city. We stayed just one night but would certainly return for a longer stay.
