4/5 Good

It was close to the sites we wanted to see, the parking was onsite, and the staff was very helpful. They answered my emails promptly about the parking and access through the pedestrian area.

Our room was so small that the only place to put our (medium size) suitcases without tripping over them was in an upright position in one corner. The closet/wardrobe was divided in two 14 inch vertical spaces making it impossible for suitcase placement. However, we did appreciate the on site parking.

They charged me twice.

They charged me twice. It could be a's fault. I chose "Pay at the hotel" option. And my money got deducted by the hotel very soon. When I checked out the hotel, the girl charged me again. She said something about "holding the money", but it IS deducted. She could check the transaction with my card from their data. Definitely, she didn't care what's happening in my reservation. The hotel itself is awesome. Very clean. Nice location. But how can I like such hotel and service.
