Nicely updated hotel. However it can be hard to find with the only entrance inside the parking lot of a shopping center. Two mapping apps took me to the incorrect location. Tucked away on the top of a hill makes it feel removed from the hustle and bustle below.

I found the Staff very accommodating, and Hospitable. I arrived on April 13, 2015, and have approximately two more weeks remaining in my current residence. I would gladly come back for a vacation stay, as I will miss the Staff including Guzzi, Tesh, Victor, Elizabeth and all the House Keepers.
