Perfect location, great value
Got a good deal on Kayak. The internet is GREAT, which makes me happy because internet seems to be an ongoing drama all over Europe. Welcome to the 21st century Europe, crawl out of your castles and get online. Breakfast was fine, had some whiskey in the bar as a nightcap. Location was great, fun to walk around the area.
