I stayed at this wonderfull place for one week and I`ve been deeply touched especially by the staff, who take care of their guest like you are family. The hotel manager received us with the words: I am you "guardian angel" from now on, and indeed, he was. He explained, organized, showed us everything we needed. Always attentive and listening.
They prepared the place, the rooms with mindfullness, taking care of any detail...like rosepetals on the stairs, leading you up to your room, accompanied by the smell of orange blossom.
The wonderfull breakfast was served, when and where you wanted to take it.
You really arrive first in "a dusty little street" and when you passed the "beautiful black door" you find yourself in a oasis of stillness. A realm of relaxation, woven into a feeling of being protected.
Congratulations to Carlos for this wonderfull place and his great staff, which gives this place its heartfull flavour.
