The appartments are very good - spotless, big and with enough kitchen utilities. I would have given the hotel a 4-star rating if it wasn't for the owner. We thought he was a bit unfriendly. We arrived early and our room was already clean which was great (as in some hotels you have to wait until midday or later to...
