Comme prévu, le réveil matinal a été trèèès difficile, après une nuit de 3h. Du coup les 2 vols ont surtout été passés à dormir (enfin surtout pour Emilie).

    Stayed here with a group tour and the staff was very accommodating as we had leave our big bags and allowed us to do so in the room. When we returned only a few of us had to change rooms. Beds are very comfy and warm, bathrooms clean and lots of hot water.
