Without a doubt the best hotel experience we had in a long time. This place is amazing and the family that runs the hotel is fantastic! They made us feel special and not just room fillers like you do in so many places. Not only the rooms are spacious and clean but the balcony

"All rooms are fine. we are on a organized tour so no idea of the prices, sorry!"
"The staff will recommend something to fit your needs."
"Higher floors have a patio."
"Didn't see any other rooms but we understand that when restoring the building the owners chose to have fewer rooms (only nine) so they could make sure they were all of a good size.

There are a few steps from outside into the reception area, but apart from that access is easy."
"No lift and some stairs not handicapped friendly but then most mountain top villages are tricky"
$50 - $112 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
