Maybe I just happened to be here with very loud people, but you can really hear everything. From the corridor and through the ceiling. Couldn't sleep half of the night.

Good price hotel, breakfest included, but very poor assoritment. Not very tidy in the room, a lot of dust on the desk lamp. Good and friendy staff. Spaciuos room. A private bathroom is a big advantage.
