Fair 4.0
Achei um custo-benefício alto. Quarto confortável, bom ar condicionado. Entretanto não há interfone nos quartos só através do whatsapp, assim sugere o proprietário. O atendimento da recepção é muito ruim. Quase sempre estão fora do local. Mas são educados.

O hotel é simples, estilo mais pra pousada. O quarto e o banheiro eram limpos, toalhas e lençóis tbm. Fomos bem recebidos na recepção, e o café da manhã também é bom. Nosso quarto era o segundo andar, e como não tem elevador, tivemos q carregar as malas.
