This place was advertised as quiet and tranquil as former convent - yet, there is a very busy road next to it, and as we stayed in the room closest to that road, it was anything but quiet. Furthermore, on one of the evenings there was very loud music played right under our room so again, anything but quiet. The rooms are extremely basic, no tv, no shower gel or other sundries apart from basic soap, the breakfast is the dullest I have ever seen in a B&B/guest house accommodation, you had to make coffee (instant) and toast yourself and serve yourself on plain cheese, ham, jam or yoghurt, no cooked breakfast or anything else. The welcome wasn't very friendly either, not sure if that was due to lack of language, I tried to ask for information on buses to get to centre and back and was given a leaflet with no further detail whatsoever.
I am definitely not staying there again and wouldn't recommend to anyone. I'd rather take a youth hostel, at least then I know what to expect!
