        This hotel is just dirty, badely isolated, you hear everything around you and mosquitos, lizards and coakroches make their way into your room. Employees of the hotel start making noises early in the morning. Avoid at all costs!

        We stayed there for two nights in a privet room and we liked it. The place need update, specially in the bathroom. Well equipped kitchen and halpfull staff. Great loction, not on the main road of La Furtona, 2-3 minutes by foot, quiet street.
