The hotel is okay, adequate for the price. The location is excellent and very good service. The beds are good, towels and sheets changed every day. The breakfast service is charged separately. The price is right, ideal to sleep a sufficient comfort.

He showed us where we could park for free that day and let us park for free next to the hotel for the following day. The rooms were simple and clean....

At the end of a day's ride on our moto we arrived at Hotel Iris without reservation and the staff was welcoming and gave us the perfect moto parking place. We found that Hotel Iris is perfectly rated as a 2-star hotel in Europe. Amenities are few but the hotel is in a fantastic location. The hotel seems to be...
