Great stay. Staff were very warm and welcoming and ready to help wherever they could. Lovely clean accommodation! Breakfast was good, however some changes in the morning menu would benefit especially if there for a longer stay. Very nice hotel! Great service!

The staff there are very professional, helpful and friendly. The location is great, only 10-15 minutes walk to the famous walking street. Many good restaurants and café nearby, every corner of each block. The hotel room is very modern and new, not big but very nice and practical. Free wifi. Good breakfast! Highy recommended! Definitely coming back here again ❤️😍.
