It was in a great location right next to the train that comes into town and right next to the cable car for the views.
The service and food was wonderful.
No reservation can be made for the private pool. You need to wait outside until the other guest finish. Stunning view from my balcony, however the bathtub inside my room doesn’t provide hot spring. If it does, it would be perfect!
