Hotel is built around a really nice outdoor patio with a fire pit that's perfect for setting during the day or evening. Rooms were nice if a bit small, restaurant was quite nice - and the staff was excellent. All were exceptionally courteous and helpful, but special thanks go to the concierge, Marco, for his friendly and helpful advice throughout our visit.

The host is very gracious to us letting us to check in early and giving us a free breakfast buffet on the day of our arrival. We were so tired from our airplane trip. But the host made it easy for us.
