If you normally stay in plush, soulless hotels then this perhaps isn't for you. The son and mother running the place were extremely friendly, and whilst the lady could not speak English, her warmth and level of care really shone through.

A hotel which is more like hostel, not worth the money they ask for it. Rooms are not very clean and basicly no proper service. Breakfast was rather poor. If you want to get something better for this value, try hotel Irina, which is just two steps away.

The coffee was awful. The ''bathroom'' was located INSIDE the room - shower cabin placed 1cm away from the bed. Unexpected. The toilet had a door (thanks God). The... More
