Rooms are nothing special, but the location of the hotel is great. They also have safe car park just some hundreds of meter from the hotel. Very friendly staff and great breakfast. Also pool and gym are very good. Quite pricey though, but I think all hotels are in this area.

Every now and again you come across a hidden gem. This is a small family owned and run hotel who do everything they can to ensure you have a great stay. Nothing was too much trouble. We left our passports and they arrived with them at the train station. Marco & Luigi and family thank you
