        Is there an email address for this accommodation? Calling on the internet I must pay $.50 per minute and I do not have clear enough of a connection to hear well. Do they have a website?Googling just sends me to travel agencies not an actual site of the hotel. What is meant by close to the ruins? Can I walk to the ruins or will I have to arrange transport for that? I will not have a car.
