where to start? I arrived home this morning after 5 days here. the food, as the hotel is German orientated, the selection was minimal, unless you liked German sausage. there was one receptionist, who spent her time talking to a girlfriend,(I speak Spanish), and if you dared to approach, an icy stare was her first response, and to answer an...

The hotel is mostly occupied... More
