We were holidaying for five days before Christmas with two young kids, so looking for something friendly, hassle- free and simple. Michael's House fits the bill perfectly. Extremely friendly and helpful staff were able to arrange pretty much anything we needed. Minor gripes - location is not great. Takes a while to get a taxi. That said, the metro is only a fifteen minute walk away - but at the end of a Long day with youngsters, this can seem a lot. Also breakfast was decidedly average. Small concerns for which the overall ambiance and quaintness of the place more than compensates.
