Artworks are exhibited inside the hotel, in the reception, on each and every floor, in each individual room and outdoors, with monumental art sculpted in the marble. Our guests often say that they lose the notion of time when they admire the exposed works.
"The uniqueness of the hotel, the fact that it is a museum hotel, especially interesting. In the room there is an art album with works exhibited throughout the hotel. The kindness of the staff was absolute, the hotel owner himself showed us a tour of the most representative artworks."
