Great place to stay!
Third time I have stayed here. Always great service and always very clean. Location is superb and views are great! WiFi is excellent and free parking. Also only two mins of the main road so also quiet but great and easy access.

A hidden gem!
We were really happy with Villa Gardenia. Martina was extremely welcoming and helpful. The hotel is off of the highway, but not too far,, so there wasn't any noise from traffic. The room was very new, clean, and accommodated all us very comfortably. There are decent restaurant options within easy walking distance. The breakfast buffet served at the hotel was very tasty with plenty of options. Overall, this hotel was an excellent value for the cost, and we would strongly recommend it!

Vynikající pro rodiny s malými dětmi
Je důležité předem si domluvit pokoj s přistýlkami. Pokoje jsou různých velikostí, tak aby jste se nemačkali v malé místnosti... Jinak vše je funkční, nové, super lokalita..... - blízko funparku s lyžařskou školou pro děti...
