    The price is in Euros. If only I checked what I was paying for I would have just booked for a nice hotel in the same area and cheaper. Plus the private rooms are not located in the same building you will have to walk another 100meters therefore if you would have to check-out you will need to walk back to the main building. And there is no elevators and therefore if you have a lot of luggage good luck.
