The location of the B&B is ok-ish. It is unfortunately not located in the most beautiful part of the city. And if you arrive by car you might have a couple of problems (no private parking and public parking nearby is scarce).
The guy at the reception welcomed us in a friendly manner - he even helped us park the car. He also recommended an excellent restaurant nearby where they sell the biggest pizzas in the world! :)
The rooms were very clean but the showers were super tiny! If you opened them completely there was an opening of about 30 cm to get through. Now, if you're a normal person, it won't give you any problems (you might have to suck your tummy in), but if you're a bit on the heavy side I can imagine you would not fit in there.
The breakfast was limited - toast, ham, cheese, jam and juice. There are only three small tables though (each for two people) so you might have to wait a bit while other people are having breakfast.
