Fridge, vault, hairdryer, free WiFi; all the usual comforts. A breakfast buffet is included. There is a pool in the hotel, as well as a restaurant. The location is very good, with the...

Our suitcase was taken upstairs for us and there is free wi-fi available. Our room was gorgeous! Nicely furnished, comfortable, with a small balcony. The...
