Our room was nice and clean and our view from our balcony overlooking the mountains was gorgeous. My only issue was when they ran my card (“preauthorized”) for my room prior to check in for the full amount. I transferred money to that account just to cover the cost of the room. So when I went to ...

Costo- valor muy satisfactorio yo diría muy atractivo. Es un hotel con instalaciones añosas pero bien conservadas, todos la comodidades funcionan al 100%, y los alrededores son mágicos. No me gustó que la hora de check-out es muy temprana. Estimo que debería ser a las 3pm y no a las 10:30 am.
