Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This place made me feel like I was visiting another country. The unique building was great. We were met by the host, very pleasant & helpful. Check out was so easy, just leave the key. Our room was facing the street so we could sit and see the lively city from our room. It was easy access to everything we wanted to do. There was plenty of coffee & tea, even a bottle of water in there for us. It’s not a new or flashy place. If that’s what you want, you shouldn’t stay here. If you want a charming authentic place, give it a try. It really made me feel like a local.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The room was too cold and it was in the basement which is partly why it was so cold. Turning the heating on for an hour or so in the night and then for an hour or so in the morning is not enough. The heating should be on continuously.
