Fabulous 8,8 From 94 reviews

Very good 8,0
Cozy but convenient with great food
From the pictures I saw prior to our visit was not expecting so small a room. It was clean and comfortable but cramped - didn't have a place for the second suitcase or any of our carryon luggage. The "heated" closet was a godsend!! since it rained the first two days. Made good use of the refrigerator. Beds were really comfortable and staff furnished a lighter blanket upon request. Location was excellent. Breakfasts to die for!

Ground level apartment convenient
Had trouble reaching someone by phone on day of check in. A bit outdated, especially bathroom. Street parking. Nice to have the little kitchenette available, walking distance to a grocery.

Loved our stay!
It was a such a great place to stay. The owner was very lovely. He bought fresh milk each day and offered fresh cheese. It was warm and clean and a great location to see the sights around the south. Highly recommended!

A warm spot in the midst of snow and wind
Very welcoming, check in was very easy. They aware of the early arrivals from the States and will watch for luggage until your room is ready. On our 2 night stay they upgraded us to an apartment, nice breakfast is available. The house is close to the BSI no need to get a shuttle after the trip from airport. Loved the place, location and people
