Pros: Super friendly owners who were very attentive. Maria spoke excellent English, was very warm and eagerly recommended the best places to eat in town. Wi-Fi reception was excellent and the breakfast (vouchers for a local cafe's offerings) was mostly good (just avoid the fruit salad- there were some flies hanging around the outdoor patio buffet).
Cons: The only downside is the smell outside the property that greets you when you walk down that street, but that's not something the B&B owners can control or help much. The location looks a little sketchy when you first see it (the entrance to the inn is at the end of a side alleyway), but it is a very safe place to stay.

We checked in at the main building and were 'guided' to the other building by a staff member. We were on foot and she was on her bicycle. She gave us ambiguous directions and then raced ahead on her bike. We got lost for about 30 minutes, which was very frustrating. I was also charged for the room twice because no one from the hotel could remember what happened, even though the receipt from the first payment was waiting for us in our room when we finally arrived. They made up for all of these inconveniences by offering us a lovely free breakfast in the morning, served in our room! This was great.
Pros: Good location, very close to the train station. Rooms are simple, clean, comfortable. Good neighbourhood for meeting locals too!
Cons: There are two buildings which are over 600 meters apart, and it is not at all clear where we are supposed to check in. I wrote to tell when we would arrive and although I got a fast reply, I was not given any instructions.
