Unsecured parking. Car left outside, not very safe option. For that reason, would not stay there again. If this is not something bothering you, this could be a very good option. Lots of character, 1927 house.

We really enjoyed our stay. We booked the family room as it was an all girls' trip! We will be back for sure! Clean room, clean linen and towels. Coffee and tea facility in the room wit small fridge and microwave. Great location with a well priced restaurant next door with very yummy food.

The hotel is well located in the city. The room is great and the house is well maintained, keeping its historical aspects conserved. There is also a private parking place to park your vehicle if necessary.
