Solid, clean rooms
If for some reason you show up to Konklor Hotel and it’s full, Green Hotel, located directly across the street, is a perfectly fine alternative.
While it doesn’t have Konklor’s white picket fence-charm, rooms here are new, clean and comfortable.The motel-style building is made of brick, brick and more brick. That, along with the terracotta floors, solid wood furniture and the small windows do make things feel a little dark and heavy. You get a small, clean wetroom bathroom with more brick and terracotta and hot water shower. Amenities include WiFi, air-con and fridge. We’d still choose Konklor and its friendly and communal atmosphere, places to hang out, food options, a garden and English speaking staff. Green Hotel, however, is significantly cheaper.
