    Creepy men ready to jump at you from the ceiling... No seriously! Very cool though. Conveniently located near bars, restaurants and safe enough to walk and good transport system. The backpacker had character and a charm about it.

    Stayed at Cat & Moose for a week. The service from the gentlemen (John in particular) at the reception was amazing. The atmosphere is quiet and the small garden and pond gives the place a beautiful ambiance. It's located right in the heart of town...More

    I spent 4 nights there at a private room. The building was a little old but really clean place and friendly staff. Complete set of utensiles in kitchen. Daily services for room cleaning and you can even ask for "no entry in my room". Great...😊😊😊
