The host is very friendly. The house is situated on a hill overlooking the historical part of town and there is a nice restaurant down the hill called Pappas. That was the good part. The bedding was a disgrace. No upper sheet. We had to sleep on plastic undersheet and comforter. Pillows had no protective covers, smelled sweaty and had large yellow stains. Comforter smelled of bodily fluids and was disgusting. I had to spray the bedding with air freshener. The mats in the bathroom were disgustingly dirty. The shower had a fungal garden growing in it. Breakfast was tasty but very unpalateble...
