    All we wanted: quiet, comfortable bedding, clean. 5 min walking from bus station and 10 min from shopping / dining / bar area. Recommendable breakfast is served in an historic building; seating at one big table.

    We could not have been more comfortable, great location near all the main attractions and importantly in an area that was quiet at night. Our apartment had everything we needed and was well serviced each day( we stayed 5 nights).
