Helpful host

I stayed overnight with my mother & sister in a 2 room apartment with kitchette. The manager did not charge for use of the washing machine, which we really appreciated.

Tired but clean! And very friendly and helpful!

Just an overnight stay so only wanted basic. Lovely friendly welcome! We had arrived a bit earlier than check in time but was allowed to go to room. Had elderly father(94) and disabled husband (75) both of whom found the bathroom a little small, with a large step up into shower a bit difficult, but have been told that renovation is planned. On a busy corner so noisy during the day but quietened down in the evening. Close to town, about 20-25 minutes walk along the river.
