We spent 4 nights in a Doubleroom with our own bathroom. The room is lovely arranged and we had enough space for our stuff and the shoppings ;-) The room was very clean and comfortable. We had also breakfast which was very delicious with fresh fruits, delicious pancakes and enough toast. The location is close to a few bus lines...

We have just spent 4 nights in the family room, it isn't large although it is cozy. Couldn't believe how you could actually fit 5 people in the family room. There is just 3 of us and it was perfect. Maybe if you had 2 kids to put in the bunk beds it would work great, I think 5 adults...

We appreciated the owner getting up early one morning to arrange breakfast as we had booked an early tour - we didn't expect this and it was very kind. The friendly and helpful advice went above and beyond - in our three month...

We had a shared-bath room, which can sometimes be not so good, but we had no problems. The bedroom, toilet, and shower room were all very clean.
