We stayed here for three nights while visiting friends in the next town. It was a lovely, quaint hotel near to restaurants, bars, shopping, the Palace and the markets. It was wonderful to stroll about the markets, stop at the cafes and enjoy some delicious meals. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The wifi worked well and it... More

Hello What a wonderful comment to read! Unfortunately we don't have any English channels, sorry about that. Not all of our superior rooms have the kitchenette option (for other readers' info). I'm glad you enjoyed it! It is a cultural difference not to have restaurants serving breakfast, and unfortunate :-) Thank you for taking the time to comment and we... More

Hello Thank you for your kind comment and I'm glad you had a good stay. We prefer to offer hard-boiled eggs on demand for our guests to avoid them cooling off too long :) They need a couple of minutes to cook.

My wife and I stayed here one night on 5th October. The hotel is a very historic building, and was very conveniently situated for a visit to the Chateau although a 5 minute walk is probably only possible if your name is Usain Bolt.
