Beautiful and quiet hotel just a couple of minutes away from the heart of the city. The guys at the reception were very helpful with any questions we had and provided us with a lot of info. The rooms were clean and had a great size.

Dear guest, thank you for writing the review. Previous reviewers insist on quiet of our hotel, because in addition to the front pool we have a little pool in the garden where you would have found peace and no disturbance. Our rooms are well soundproofed with windows closed and air conditioning turned on. Greetings from all the staff
