The hotel is in an unbeatable location (great view) and staff is really, really nice and helpful. Room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The hotel restaurant is good, especially if you get a table in the more exclusive upper terrace. I only wish the hotel had let us know that it is not reachable by car.

I thought this was going to be a old and worn hotel with amazing views. I was wrong, it was one of the most beautiful and comfortable hotel rooms I've ever stayed in.
