I thought between 2 or 3 stars for this hotel. The room was ok, nice bed, but nothing out of the ordinary. And a minus the rooms NOT having a refrigerator. The pool was maybe the best part of the place. We had the whole place almost for ourselves since there was only one couple besides us, so we did a night swim in the pool for couple of times. The bathroom was way too big(!), should have used the space elsewhere instead than to the bathroom and in there was also a constant, really bad smell (actually of urine and sweat).. I think that came from the plunging but it was distracting nevertheless. WiFi was good in this hotel and the staff was nice and friendly. The owner though was a bit useless - even though he did try - regarding for actually useful information about the near by sites and/or traveling around (other than by car). The rooms were located around the pool in the inner yard and we had the first room on the left, on 1st floor (I guess it was room #1..). Should there have been children f.ex. playing and shouting around the pool the room would've been a very noisy place. But luckily for us there wasn't any children staying over there then. But if you'd like some privacy and quiet times, a room from the 2nd floor would be your best bet. The location was ok, not a long walk from the city centre. Hotel can be a bit tricky to find since they don't have anything outside the building (no sign stating "hotel", etc.) stating that that is a hotel. Rather it looks like a private house instead. So make sure you have the exact address and take a taxi.
