Location was great, room was ascetic. WIFI was good. I appreciate the will of the owner who is keeping this Hotel far from any renovation. You share the toilet and shower with others and they are disgusting.

Stayed here before a friends wedding, we were impressed with the quality of the room, and spaciousness. Located in a wonderful spot right in the heart of the city. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends
