Excelent stay and staff

We were in a private double bedroom and everything was very pleasant. It was clean and tidy.
When we arrived the staff was friendly and very welcoming,they helped us a lot. But the surprise was when the night came and we decided to go upstairs for a beer. We met the Chef who was an extraordinary person and also a fantastic cook. We stayed for dinner and it was the BEST meal we had in the entire city! Super recomendable!

Thanks for everything!
