    The location of the hotel is good, close to the center. It was nothing luxurious but there was a lot of space and it was very clean. The staff was specially kind and helpful, all of them. I enjoyed my stay a lot!

    Our family rooms have a double bed and a single bed, normally for three occupants; it would depend on the age of your children and for how many nights you wish to stay. Please contact the hotel directly with your request.
