The hotel is good. No complains for the service, the staff (they are really nice!) and even the breakfast is totally worth it. The installation itself is also good and clean. My problem was the noise. One day, at 3 am the close room had its telephone ringing for more than 5 minutes and nobody answered, but I woke-up. The...

I had not stayed at this particular hotel before but weather-related problems led us to this place. So glad we stayed there. From the moment you walk in the ambience is stunning.
