The hotel is minutes from the airport, and yet is situated next to a very nice lake! Very new renovation in room, the elevator is a little slow but is still ok. Mountain view rooms - let's just say it has some mountain as backdrop, but mainly you'll get a view of the road first. Excellent service at the restaurant,...
