  • It is a very nice place but that, having a source of water, it causes to bring numerous flocks of birds to drink and one can have some stains on your clothes. From there you can have a beautiful view of the Hill and the Cathedral. However the negative, is something that can not fail to visit.

  • The Lady responsible for the buffet was an ogre! Very heavy and bad deals to the host... the rest of the impeccable hotel!

  • Good location, not have way to announce the arrival to the parking, the breakfast begins late if one is passing through work in the city. The elevator was in maintenance when I arrived and the piece wasn't ready so it gave me another, that was not clean, poor coordination between reception and cleaning. That same day the receptionist had stolen you money from the box for what you were looking for in the guilty of the theft security cameras.
