    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    LAs habitaciones estaban muy bien y cómodas. Calefacción impecable. Los lugares comunes estaban muy bien equipados. Es económico y está ok. Lo único fue que se acabo el jabón líquido y el papel higiénico, y no se repuso. El lugar esta muy bien ubicado cerca de supermercados y de lugares para comer.

    Insulation’s problem

    Hope all of guests who stay there would follow the rules. The room's insulation is too bad.
