ADVANTAGES TO HIGHLIGHT: good value for money, you pay for what they offer, considering that it is average price do not expect the best market mattresses or pillows. Attentive and helpful staff. The touch and decoration of the common areas next to the garden form a peculiar and attractive set. You can see the effort, after the renovation a few years ago, to please and serve the visitor. It is very well located.

DISADVANTAGES TO MENTION: They give a poor breakfast of two sliced ​​bread toast with butter and coffee. I am of the opinion of if you offer breakfast included, as this hotel does, do it well. They offer their breakfast menu so that you can complete the payment separately.
