Near attractions in quiet area but noisy guests.
Excellent location near canals and major attractions. But guests can be noisy as thin walls. Also laundry machine broke when we arrived so they did our laundry in the staff machine. So good and bad. Rooms on third floor can get warm without airflow.

4/10 Fair

Не самое дружеское размещение. Взяли за белье 100р. Не очень в целом понятно, насколько это законно, так как услуга размещения вроде бы уже подразумевает белье. Плюс узнаешь об этом только после оплаты.
