    A beautiful historic hotel that is well located. Lovely large rooms with a spacious bathroom. Very well located and an easy walk is possible through this historic city. Many good restaurants close by as well as coffee shops. A lovely place to stay.

    A well furnished hotel. Friendly services. Breakfast is too expensive. Better to go outside to save at least 10 euro pp. Beautiful room. No noice and great parking. Nicely situated in the center. Everything is at walking distance. Some good restaurants in the neighborhood too
