Watch out for email login security
I was not able to remove my user name after using email service on the hotel lobby computer, even after closing and restarting the web browser. There are supposedly ways to delete the information but the browser did not have an English option that I could find. The hotel should remedy this so that user login information is deleted each time the browser is closed. Otherwise the hotel was wonderful.

Hotel is old and outdated. Mattresses are horrible and from the seventies. BUT, the garden is gorgeous and the location couldn't be better. Breakfast can be missed.

I rarely write reviews, but this is the first bad hotel experience I have had. Stayed in a standard room which was dirty, had old furniture, battered walls, stained carpet, the bathtub was stained yellow, and there was hair all over the bathroom floor. Had a reservation for 2 days, but left after the first night, losing the money that we had paid initially. In addition, the location is subpar, as there is little within walking distance from the hotel, and bus transportation is pretty pricey. If you decide to stay here, DO NOT stay in the standard room. I cannot speak for the other rooms, but if their condition was similar, I would write this hotel off as a no go.

Food quality serves at Buffet dinner does not match with the value of the price. Picture of the Buffet was good. A bit run down feel of the hotel.

Beautiful views at a fantastic price.
As soon as we walked in the building we were greeted warmly and taken care of. Staff is very friendly and they have bilingual staff. The hotel itself is older but inside is very nice and has gorgeous views of the gardens and mountain surrounding the area. The public baths are so good! The natural hot springs melted the stress away. I would definitely stay here again.
