How to find us:

By car
The hotel is in the traffic-restricted area called Z.T.L. The ZTL is supervised by cameras which take pictures of the cars entering the area. You must communicate your car’s registration number to the reception on arrival so that we can forward it to the relevant authorities. This will prevent you from being fined.
