                        • The bar and patio areas are inviting, refined and gorgeous, the hotel spa is awesome for relieving any leg pains.

                          Unfortunately the good service stops there.

                        • The location is perfect and the setting is unforgettable.

                          For this kind of hotel poor breakfast, great Old Style Service and prices more expensive for the same products than in Geneva for example.

                        • I loved the location, best Hotel Ever and this time, the service was much better. The bathroom featured great molten brown products and the spa facilities were amazing.

                          To my opinion not well trained personnel, again, excellent food, no complaints there.
