Highs & Lows

  • Amazing staff that was so welcoming! We felt like old friends.

  • Location was unbeatable. So close to the city center, but in a more local area that was away from the tourists.

  • Not that many amenities. It was nice they served a complimentary breakfast but I wouldn’t stay here for a super luxury experience.

  • Pre-Arrival Experience

    From booking the hotel to the arrival we were greeted with so much warmth. The owner of the hotel is a local calligrapher and said she would love to write our names for our honeymoon upon arrival at her studio. When we arrived at the front desk it was like being greeted by an old friend. Happy to have us and tell us everywhere we should go, eat, and drink

  • Future Forward

    The hotel was very minimal in the sense that there was not much offered besides continental breakfast that provided reusable cups and plates. Nothing was too wasteful but there was not a conscious effort of being future forward
