Building with very beautiful architecture. Blends perfectly into the landscape, more than perfect location. Very beautiful lighting in the evening, very impressive, you can’t missed is. Did go inside to have a look, it looks splendid inside as well. A lot of bars at the edge of the building. Pretty sure it looks amazing to booked a night in the hotel 👍🏼

Try it If you want to throw your money in trash. The building is old, the furniture, bed and everything in rooms are worn out, we stayed there for a night and then we moved. The night clubs music and noise won’t let anyone sleep. It might be good if you want to go party all night and don’t want any service, but the price makes you want some service! The hair dryer in the room was ready to explode, it smelled like burnt wire. People where screaming in corridors at 7 am, and room service won’t answer anytime soon. It was just one positive point though, management accepted to refund with no problem. They accepted our noise complain and easily paid our money back.
