I think it wasn't fair that I (Uruguayan citizenship) was made to pay cash at the arrival of property while at the same time guest from other nationalities (American from Usa) could pay their stay using credit cards. It didn't state CLEARLY what your policy was, for sure I won't make reservation with ebookers again, I strongly dislike this attitude.

Great location, nice staff, good WiFi. On the other hand, the room had strong detergent smell and the shower cabin was super tiny.

Vale demais o preço.
Assim, fomos no quarto mais simples, era bem o que estava descrito, a cama era confortável, apesar de ser outono, achei a noite meio frio não sei se era problema no aquecedor, mas nada que incomodasse, o banheiro apesar de limpo, juntava água e o ralo não era tão eficiente, mas enfim pelo preço vale demais os atendentes são muito gente finas, e o café da manhã também é legal era bem limpo, aparentemente limpava-se todos o dias.
