    Staff was nice. Let us store our bags. Location is great. Bed is comfortable; separate but conjoined beds which makes it easier to sleep as a couple. Relative value for area.

    Right in the town center and only a couple of minutes walk from the funicular which takes you to the train station. Many shops around. Good breakfast and helpful staff.
