Super, pal in het centrum van de stad. Mooie kamers. Niemand gezien want in en out checken ging contactloos. Kamer was iets kleiner dan op de foto’s leek en voor het bedrag hadden we wel iets van water erbij verwacht. Alles was perfect onderhouden. Geen mogelijkheid om dichtbij te parkeren of om iets extra’s te vragen zoals ontbijt op de kamer.

Midden in het centrum met de markt voor de deur. Ook grappig dat je geen sleutel nodig had, maar een QR-code. Alles was nog helemaal nieuw!
