This was my first time staying in shared accommodation. Fish Tail has privacy curtain, individual charging station and light with a shelf and locked storage area. I would highly recommend.

Nice room on side street. Great restaurants all around. Very comfortable. My room was away from others, so can't comment on noise levels. Breakfast was pretty bare, but sufficient.

Très bon accueil .la suite est conforme au photo je ne regrette pas d'être venu malgré l'appréhension que j'avais au départ mais très agréablement surprise . La suite vaut largement certaines chambres d'un hôtel 3* voir 4* belle découverte et bien placé. Le prix est vraiment intéressant je recommande 👍👍
