Thank you I will definitely come again !!! - Agathaggelou
Thanks to all the staff for their kindness. They were all willing and ready to serve you for anything. I had paid for a budget room with a balcony and was eventually given a room with a huge balcony overlooking the snowy mountains. Even though the hotel was full, our room was so noisy that you thought it was empty. The breakfast is excellent and rich !!! Amazing location. 10 ''
