The location, clean air outside of the city.
Hotel is located on the road to the Medeo. Sight view is very good, however keep in mind that location is in mountains. Good pool and sauna at the ground floor. Nice personnel. Dinner was tasty.
Check out may take some time because they need to check minibar. It might be better to put to minibar free water only or keep it empty, as an option. Restaurant is tasty but expensive.
Staff Rooms and balcony with view SPA was clean
This is the second time I stay at this hotel, exactly because of the location. Out of the window you can see mountains chain. The air clean and fresh not as in the city. The hotel is just 10 minutes drive to Medeo.
Poor choice of breakfasts - you have only 4 - 5 sets which you may choose. The first day we waited for breakfast for about 50 minutes. The hotel is under renovation now, thefore you experienced noice during the day and dust from construction works. Staff tries to keep this away from guests, however you cannot avoid all inconveniences. You can smoke in some rooms, as a non-smoker you feel that people were smoking havealy and the smell is still there.
