Demasiado lejos del centro”

La relación calidad-precio es muy buena, el sitio está bien y el personal es muy amable, pero está demasiado lejos del centro como para ir andando.

Enkelt och litet hotell med trevlig personal.”

Rent och fräscht rum, god frukost. Rekommnderas!

Vi tycker att det här är ett bra och billigare alternativ till hotell. Vi blev positivt bemötta, rummet,toaletter/dusch och frukostrum var fräscha och välstädade. Ett rimligt boende i en stor stad. Relativt nära till centrum och lätt att ta sig dit med hjälp av bussar som gick direkt utanför entren. Trevlig personal och god frukost. Det här är ett ställe som vi rekommenderar för våra vänner som åker dit nästa sommar.
