8/10 Very good

Nice place, good location
Check in was fine The family villa is very specious and comfortable, the 2nd floor wood has some holes in it which made my kids afraid to walk on the floor. Shower had very weak ventilation and therefore was smelly after short use

6/10 Good

Location was good right in the city center and across from a really good bakery. We had a single room and had to share the bathroom with the entire floor. There should have been more bathrooms per floor. Only one bathroom for the floor was not enough. Bathroom was ok but was plugged in the middle on the night when we went to go use it. Room was quite and comfortable. It is good if you are staying for 1 - 2 nights but it may not be good if staying any longer than that.
