Located out of the main thoroughfare yet easy bus ride to the city center and within walking distance to many great restaurants. Delicious breakfast in the morning. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful.

Even though I stayed just 1 night, I’d definitely coming back in the nearest future. The hotel is conveniently close to Students Hall where my child is and the main city attractions. The atmosphere is very friendly almost family like . Highly recommended it!
