          I really enjoyed our time in this hotel. It has a relaxing atmosphere and is unique in it's japanese style. The wine happy hour is a nice addition. The reception staff was extremely helpful and I appreciated their good attitude.

          Very good bathroom and beds, liked the TV frame. Dark walls and carpet of the hall didn't seem very nice, but it was ok. The breakfast also was very good, nice pancaches and units of toasts overexpected.
