Pros: What makes a B&B hotel good? Obviously a comfortable bed and a good breakfast; but hotel Garni offers a lot more! Excellent location right on the Danube river, a very clean room, free (and working Wi-Fi) and very friendly owners. Loved it.
Cons: No lunch or dinner options so if one makes it there on a Sunday finding dinner becomes an issue.
Pros: Wonderful hostess, great accommodations and a picturesque area. We are pretty happy we found this hotel. The breakfast buffet is wonderful and in the evenings there is even a self service wine bar.
Cons: Everything was great.
