Epäkäytännöllinen, ahdas huone. Matala sänky oli aika epämukava. Siisti, puhdas kylpyhuone ja hyvin juokseva vesi. Loistava sijainti ja mukava henkilökunta.

Schöne und saubere Unterkunft in zentraler Lage. Das Personal ist freundlich und es wird merklich täglich geputzt. Das Frühstück ist inbegriffen, jedoch eher spärlich (Toast und Kellogg’s, Butter fehlte teilweise).
