El hotel es muy particular y curioso de visitar, lleno de rincones especiales. La habitación preciosa. El baño podría haber estado más limpio (moho por la bañera).

The staff are great and very helpful. The dining room / bar is a very cool space. Our room was very small, with a carpet well past it’s prime.

We spent one night here. The property has interesting decor. We kind of enjoyed it. However, the room we had was damp and smelly. There was visible mold on the bathroom counter top. Definitely, not a 4 start as advertised on Expedia.
