Staff are friendly. Pretty good location. I was charged on the day I reserved my room in Booking.com when I requested to pay later. Do let customers know before hand on matters like this. Surprised that during this RMCO, pool is open to public. You are the first hotel we’ve been that does so. Our room with a king sized bed is very small. Bed is too near the wall. Difficult to walk about. Air condition in the room is not cold enough. Asked the front desk for help. Situation remained the same. Parking was horrendous last Saturday afternoon when we arrived. Even guests parking was full. Headache!

The staff is friendly and breakfast is excellent. The rooms are nice, however, I think they should put more effort into upgrading the bathrooms and toilets. The location of the place is good and bus stop is very close.

I booked a deluxe room with a king-size bed for 2 nights. It is a historic hotel with a unique charm and architecture. The room is small, electricity plugs are few. The floor and bed were squeaky. The wi-fi was not always working, which affected my work, as I was on a business trip. Breakfast was OK, the service not too enthusiastic, but most other staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. I love the roof-top terrace while the pool is a mini mini mini pool; I would say that the pool is rather a decoration than practical to use. The location is good, several restaurants and stores in walking distance and many interesting streets in the neighbourhood to explore the old town. The hotel offers very affordable rates, therefore excellent value for money, if you like a historic and rustic type of hotel.
