  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

Hotel was very nice and ancient but not taken care in details . A four stars structure shoud have a better SPA , there must be no plastic glasses at least a whirpool out of sauna , turkish bath not working , only one shower . Breakfast was served in a very nice hall but lack of high quality products It gives the idea that old style is enough to satisfy customers , instead details are very important . For the price paid we expected higher quality.
