          white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's

          I would like to personally give a great thank you to your employee Daniel Neves. He was really polite and helpful, a good example of empathic and friendly customer service. We checked out late after a bad experience in a nearby hotel and he was really helpful and the check in very smooth.

          Not a lot of room but we squeezed in a foldaway bed which was practically against the bed with just enough to walk sideways and about 1 metre on other side.

          We will arrive before check in time, are we able to leave our luggage and return later to check in?
