  • 4.0.Fair

    Convenient and a nice receptionist/host. Cheapish. However, room was dilapidated, small and smelt a bit damp. Don't pay for a superior room, they all seem basic and small, with the possible exception of the 6 bed room which I didn't see. Not a room to sit in and enjoy: bed, table, no space or view. Functional at best. Floor was clean but fixtures (shelf, taps, toilet seat) all run down, scratched and stained. Breakfast VERY basic. Quick, cheap sleep maybe, but it's not a place to enjoy in itself.

    No daily housekeeping as promised

    The hosts were very friendly but we were disappointed that there was no daily housekeeping as it stated . We got 3 towels and half a toilet roll when we arrived on Wednesday and no none came near our room before we left on Saturday

    Super Lage. Sehr nettes Personal. Großes und nettes Zimmer (oben auf Dachterasse), leider zwar privates Bad, aber nicht ‘ sondern quer über die. Sauberkeit ok. Gebäude könnte eine Renovierung vertragen. Preis-Leistungs-Verhöltnis gut.

    Très propre, personnel sympa et riad bien situé. Seul bemol est que le petit dejeuner n'etait servi qu'à partir de 8h30. Pour des lèves tôt et si on souhaite partir tôt pour une escapade c'est dommage mais ça nous a permis d'aller le prendre dans un petit bouiboui proche avec les locaux et c'etait super bon et pour des clopinettes.

  • 6.0.Good

    予約した宿がWブッキングで宿泊出来ず、急遽予約し宿泊しました。 予約後5分後位に到着しましたが、暖かく迎えていただきました。部屋はWベッドが四畳半から6畳くらいの部屋に有り 窓を開けると 部屋の中が丸見えで閉めると暗かった。因みに 備品は手洗いソープとタオル位です。ドライヤー シャンプー ボディーソープ は持参が必要です 一番の問題はトイレの水が流れないことです。通常タンクの水が減ると、自動で配管から水が給水されますが、給水されずシャワーの水を自分でタンクに入れて使用しました。 シャワーの湯は不安定で 使用中突然湯だけになったり水だけになったり注意が必要です。 場所は非常にいい場所に有ります。 値段相応の宿だと思います
