The owners are incredibly friendly and speak excellent English. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is a comfortable one. When we could not get a taxi one evening for a dinner reservation, one of the staff actually offered to drive us! Even though we decided to take a leisurely walk to the restaurant, I was impressed with their service. A nice breakfast buffet was included as well.
The room we had was small and the bathroom so small it had a fold-up toilet! It was fine for one night but the accomodations would have been too tight for a longer stay.
Very friendly, good location.
Very friendly and supportive staff, very central location.
Helpful and friendly staff; good location
The staff of this family run hotel was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very, very clean. Great location, insulated from the noise off the street.
just a warning for some travelers: to reach this hotel you have to go up several flights of stairs. they may have had an elevator, but I'm not sure.
