Fraying do to COVID-19
Amazingly decorated in Classic Roman style. High quality finishes throughout. High quality comfortable room It was unfortunate that a high quality 4-Star hotel going extremely cheap and poor quality breakfast using COVID as a an excuse. So out of place... Amazing hotel - terrible breakfast. Other 4-Star hotels in region still served amazing breakfasts. Minor details are being missed and will have culminative effects later: worn sheets with holes not replaced, bar not open, pond not filled, bidet with no water pressure.
