What they say about us

è stata appena una scappatina ma né valsa la pena, un tre stelle di tutto rispetto trovandosi in pieno centro, nella zona pedonale, con il suo parcheggio privato e parcheggiatore non è da tutti, alla reception siamo stati accolti con gentilezza...

Posizione centrale, personale molto disponibile anche in un periodo notoriamente problematico, la struttura ben curata anche se necessita ove possibile di qualche rinfrescata. La piscina termale sempre alla temperatura giusta. Ottima organizzazione reparto fanghi.
