Couldn't sleep on any of the 4beds in my room. No support, old and worn out - Cheap. Showers are old with minimal pressure. For the price of this hotel, I expected at least the basics of a comfortable bed. New decent beds and an upgrade of the showers are in definite need!

The manager of this motel is very kind and patient. The service in there is very good. I really like the room which we stayed, because it is clean and tidy. Their kitchen has full equipment, so that I can cook by myself.

I stayed for three nights. The staff and the manager were very helpful and warmhearted. The wifi was very well connected. In the night I enjoyed the sky TV. It's only several minutes drive to the harbor and gondola.
