Hotel is in a former monastery - rooms are spread over two
floor-high ceilings. Our second floor room was equal to a
fifth floor in New York City.
Room was clean, sheets changed very day, toilet and shower
were fine. Since this is a converted medieval monastery,
there were some quirks with the electrical wiring. Nothing

Only complaint was that when we arrived from the airport
after long trans-Atlantic flight the lift was not working.

Tip - take a coach from the airport instead of the train.
Coach takes multiple travelers direct to their destination,
and cost is EUR 15, train would be EUR 14, and then would

with no future, while threatening cuts in social services
against all of us. There were about 30 tents, with
protesters cleaning laundry daily, cooking, and holding
general assemblies to debate issues.
