The location is superb. If you are planning to spend most of the time outside the place you are staying at, this is the perfect place. Rooms are a bit small but as long as you are not a princess it is totally cool. And they are very well cleaned on a daily basis. People at reception are helpful and often organize a common session at a local bar. ... more
