Nice but they do not have double beds

We booked a double room and looks like you need to request a double bed if you want it, otherwise they will make 2 single bed side by side, they are not changing from 2 single bed for a big double bed (with 2 single together). Location is good, staff is not so friendly but nothing that bothered me too much. They don't have lift!

Perfect for the short break!

Beautiful clean hotel with fine decor but expect rather small rooms. Excellent location, about 1 mile (2 x km max) pleasant walk from the city center, quiet location with botanic gardens just opposite. Lovely breakfast. Nice staff.

Nice but rooms very small

In general, very nice place with good location and easy access to public transportation. However, the rooms are very very small. About 11 x 11‘. Barely enough for two people. Bathrooms are tiny. Everything was clean and functional, however. Good for those on a budget.
