The hotel was nice, the service was great. The rooms are clean, and with standards. The hotel is huge from the outside and is very mysterious. The grounds are nice to walk through, there is a cafe and tavern. You can also get spa treatments.

Our 5th floor suite was a King with mini fridge. I can’t remember about a microwave. We brought food in on multiple occasions.
