Thanks Fabiano.

Hardest part of Euro-vacation: arriving at 10am local time, and it's 4am your time, and you've been up all night watching movies, changing planes, and going thru customs. The host waived the 2pm checkin so l could have a shower and crash for a few hours. Bless his Brazilian-Irish heart.

Absolutely fantastic! Myself and two friends booked in for a night here and it was nothing but fantastic. Staff were amazing, rooms were spotless. Tv worked fine. We were surprised by the mugs and the supplies of teas and coffees. Room was perfect for all 3 of us. Toilet was a little noisy though after flushing but that was overlooked due to how immaculate everything else was. Locals were really friendly too. Made us feel right at home.
