Great palacial construction if the 30´s in a beautiful setting, the hotel has termal water stations inside it. Rooms are large and spacious but aging. Furniture, carpets, tyles are over 20 years old and show it...Food is included and very mediocre- do not expect gourmet food. And since the hotel is outside the city there are no restaurants to go...

Impressive hotel. I went for a Seminar. The hotel is very well organized for business meetings, events, important ceremonies. Maybe too big, too much for an holiday. It's a pity it's not maintained in very good condition. The garden is really nice, especially for party. Just one hour before our dinner prepared on the garden it started raining. But the... More

It has a strange charm given its faded grandeur and its stunning setting but this hotel has seen better days. I cannot fault the service or the quality of the food, which was included in the price. The setting is stunning and the building is a 1940s palace so it is interesting. However it appears to have received little or... More

It's extremely disappointing leaving the comfort and amenities of your own home to stay in a place that doesn't surprise you at all. At a price of about US$ 1500 for three nights with three meals/day, beverage not included, one would expect a level of comfort, cleaning and refinement at least equivalent or superior to one's own home.
