Just upon arrival you feel like at home, being greeted by the entire team is such great feeling. The welcome attitude makes the difference, as well as the refreshing atmosphere and all the kind and detailed explanations given to us. The room is wonderful, even better than the luxury other hotels. You have such privacy even if you know you...
