Trendy hotel owned by a French young man, Staff is extremely friendly and helpfull, rooms are spacious and clean. However there’s a few maintenance items which need to be taken care of. All in all, price/ quality: highly recommended and a five star review.

Loved the room, it was very spacious with the bath tub and small terrace. However, the hotel is very noisy on Friday/Saturday nights because of the live music. I could hear it from the room despite closing the door, it was very loud and lasted...More
