    The staff is exceptional. Patient , helpful above expectations. I am comparing with hotels with concierge service and I have to state that this staff exceeded that type of service. Outstanding.

    At the price nothing could be really improved

    The woman at reception was lovely. Beds comfy, showers good. Good little kitchen with free tea and coffee which I always love. Location good too.

    Only thing was wifi didn’t have any password which can be a bit worrying. It’s also a bit quiet but that was a nice surprise.

    Small but comfortable en-suite room. Some noise from late-night bars nearby.

    Contrary to info given - they do not have 24/7 reception. I was due to arrive at 2 a.m. and they had e-mailed me an access code. Only problem - it was the wrong code. It's not fun to have to make phone calls in the middle of the night.

    The staff is super friendly and welcoming. The localisation is convenient.

    The door of the showers doesn't work. There is fungi in the curtain of the showers, they need to be changed.
