Small hotels can be hit and miss but this one was definitely a hit. We found it very easily after catching a metro/tram into town from the airport at night. When we arrived we were invited to sit down for coffee and tea while the very friendly staff helped us with our belongings and checked us in. They introduced the local area on a map and gave us restaurant advice before helping bring our bags to our rooms.
Rooms are a tad on the small side but very comfortable and well equiped. They even had an ipod dock equipped clock radio so i could charge my phone and play my own music. hotel is clean throughout. breakfast was very nice.
We stayed for 4 days and the hotel's convenient location and facilities enabled us to thoroughly relax and enjoy our trip.
Only gripe, which was kind of our fault, was that my partner couldn't sleep well on the first night because of a noisy outside environment, but we later found out that it was because we didn't shut our window...
