Modern, great bathrooms. 3 mins to a supermarket, up to 10 mins to metro station or you can walk to the centre in half hour ish. Quiet area. Very nice and good value , would stay again.

El anfitrión, Kliment, es muy atento y servicial. Habla inglés perfectamente. Nosotros tuvimos un problema con el equipaje en el aeropuerto y él nos ayudó a resolverlo desinteresadamente. Está situado en un buen barrio.
