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).

DUS=70B/B, xx=79B/B (90B/B high season)

Notes: no single rooms.

Comment: good prices, closer than the other ones to the historical centre. The area is off limits but cars are allowed by the police to directly reach the hotel and give their plate number to the reception desk that will then communicate this data to the police. To keep the car during the night there is a nearby garage at 15 euro/24 hrs.
