    I liked that you had to take off your shoes at the entrance:) The style, the furnitures and the whole atmosphere were like you would be at home. Very clean room and bathroom however in the room more storage place eg. chest of drawers or similar would be nice (3 of us had only a chair and a small bedside table).

    Hope to be back again for longer stay!

    Place with an old school character and incredibly amazing selection of music played in the restaurant and a cozy shared sitting / living room. Very happy with the selection in breakfast buffet and many organic and GF options. We loved the food and also the cook that prepared our dinner veg lasagna. Thank you. Love & Peace.
