I have just stayed at Sonnetta Residency for 10 days. I can highly recommend this establishment. It is very well run and the owner and staff are very friendly and competent.

A very nice place, clean, central location (touristic area). The owner would help and answer all of your question at any time... A humble breakfast and a bit expensive, but overall we were very happy.

We switched to this hotel due to our desire for a comfy and homey stay and we found the owner to be true to his sign:"This home is yours, feel free. Home away from your home". Free use of internet computers, complimentary breakfast, convenient location, cozy rooms, advise and help with anything and personal care make this a great choice.
