In the very city centre (the parallel road above the Main Street) with a perfect quality/price ratio. The apartments are clean, warm, spacious and the hosts are willing and friendly. You can't ask for more! Definitely recommended!

Reviewed 19 June 2016

If I could judge solely on the "homeliness" of the place, this would be a definite 5-star. But it is exactly that, a home. It should not be compared to your typical hotel, and is best suited to more independent travelers. While the hostess, Hlin,...More
