The hotel really liked. The staff is attentive and friendly. The number is simply super at its own expense. Breakfasts lived up to expectations. The location for starting a trip around the city is very convenient. The only wish is to increase the internet speed a bit. In general, I liked everything, thank you! :-) With best wishes, Alexander Gubenko,...

The area itself is quite quiet, most of the touristy stuff is...
