The area is peaceful. The hotel looks very nice from outside with big windows in the restaurant. When we arrived there we did not have reservations and my husband and I had to take two small (very small rooms) instead of one room. Even though the rooms were small, we had a good stay. The rooms were clean and quiet and the beds were comfortable. The TV channels selection was very limited.
The girl at the front desk was very helpful and told us where to find restaurants, ATM machines and internet (at a hostel near by). I think the hotel has Wi-Fi but we did not have a computer with us.
If you are having dinner there, you have to make reservations early since it seems they often have tour groups staying there and the restaurant gets booked up pretty quickly. Next morning, we had breakfast after the crowd that was part of the tour left. The breakfast was good but, unfortunately, the drinks were taken away from the buffet table before we finished. The view from the restaurant was gorgeous.
