                                        Center of the beautiful city, nice small hotel, not very cheap, but wort to stay in it. If you come by car, ask taxi driver to go there and follow him, Almost imposible to find tha way on your own.

                                        Valet parking closed until 7 am. I had my flight earlier. Hotel helped me to deliver car to Avis and sent my belongings from car to me, but generally it is not acceptable.

                                        The location is exelent

                                        Smell coming from the kitsen all time. The "window" was opening dificult and was looking on a small aley full with masinery!!! Dark and depresing. Also the parking was overpriced. 40 euro per night
