No xB, DUS=60, xxB=70, xxxB=80 (all prices obviously B/B)

Notes: no smoking rooms only.

Comment: small (just four rooms), cheap but highly refined lodging, as visible from its web site. Service is accurate, and all rooms have satellite TV and air conditioning, while a web connection is available in the common room. Opened in 2003, extremely quiet and silent, offers also a fresh garden during summer. Easy parking (three places in a closed area plus space in the quiet road) and easy to reach by car, with also a number of car services at close distance, but not very near to the centre (with anyway a bus stop close by).

Comment: Comment: a refined and opened not long ago residence, in a very green and silent area with beautiful parks, but also with Porta Romana square reachable on foot for buses etc. Not having single rooms it is not convenient for people coming on their own, or for very short periods of stay, but when visitors are not alone and come for a certain time it becomes economical and well positioned.
