10,0 Wonderful
Pros:No fuss, just go and enjoy. Loved being able to cook a bit since eating out is crazy expensive.
Cons:Parking spots are difficult sometimes. The water smelled of sulfur.
10,0 Wonderful
Pros:Nice, quiet residential street. Short walk to shopping area & tourist sights. Having a kitchen (with coffee pot, kettle, dishes, utensils, cooking pots, etc.) in our room was great, since eating out was so expensive. There were 9 of us in three apartments. All of our rooms had different lay-outs, and one of them had a large living room where we could all gather comfortably (Apt. 2) Very friendly, helpful innkeepers, also!
