I stayed in the room right in front of the stairs, if someone was on the hallway, you could hear everything, even whispering.

We stayed in appartment 2 which was spacious and comfortable for our family of 5. It was just to stay over for 1 night and we had a good stay. However it's very basic so don't expect to find a 4 star accomodation. Very friendly staff and good breakfast. Bring cash as they do not have a credit card machine.

Promises not fulfilled and had to find a solution ourselves. On the other hand: we booked a standard room and for the same price we were given the 4-person apartment, which was tidy, but under the table stood an empty beerbottle of the previous guest. Breakfast partly in buffet form, rather limited choice (but taken in account that this is...
