Parfait
Superbe hôtel, très central. Nous avions une chambre supérieure avec balcon : très spacieuse, propre, lit confortable, équipée d’une climatisation. Piscine et bar sur le rooftop, parfait pour admirer le coucher de soleil en fin de journée. Petit déjeuner très bon (choix à la carte selon 4/5 compositions). Nous avons également dîner au restaurant, c’est excellent ! Seul bémol peut être, le service est long. Personnel très agréable, aux petits soins. Au global c’est un sans faute, hôtel que je recommande les yeux fermés !

Mycket trevligt hotell!
Ett väldigt trevligt litet hotell med toppenpersonal! Vi trivdes mycket bra och åt och drack väldigt gott också. Takpoolen bjöd på väldigt fin utsikt! Det enda extra som jag skulle önska är lite mer skugga vid poolen, några parasoll hade suttit fint. I övrigt är vi supernöjda!
