The guesthouse was amazing! I got a very spacious suite and the coupe that operates the place were extremely kind and helpful. The landlady even washed and ironed my shirts I had to wear the next day! I can just recommend this place to everyone.

The friendly owners were very welcoming and made us feel at home. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is away from the city centre but is within easy reach by frequent buses which take about 20 minutes to get in. It is also easy to get to from the bypass so we did not have to drive through...
