The Ashbee has been totally renovated and the result is brilliant. Standard rooms are looking onto the courtyard and have a small terrace but they can be quite noisy. The hotel is very practical since it is only a few meters from the city center, which is a great avantage since cars are not authorized in the old city center. The service is excellent and very kind. The swimmingpool is overlooking a fantastic panorama. The only negative point is the poor comfort of the beds.
