    The hotel is located at a small square, in a well maintained old style house. Very convenient location at the edge of the center, close to main sights, as well as bars and restaurants. Staff was very helpful.
  • Christine
    I loved the charm of the old stone building, and yet it was also comfortable and clean. It was good value for the money, but still felt like a special treat as we finished the Camino where we had mostly stayed in albergues with shared accomodation.
