Flawlessly looking woven furniture and stone walls decorated with hand-painted patterns, high ceiling with massive beams, and vintage wallpapers in guest rooms – everything reminds of the culture of the past. Premium fabrics, amazing paintings, and frescos on the walls create a truly aristocratic atmosphere.

In the hotel, one can see a priceless collection of antique furniture, old carpets and artworks. The latter are represented not only by unique paintings but also by stone sculptures that can be seen in both public areas and the inner yard. Spacious corridors of the hotel remind of museum galleries as one can see various old vases and lamps, interesting marble and wooden decorations there. The territory of the hotel includes several secluded terraces decorated with sculptures and flowers.
