  • Sometimes renovated too much, therefore hiding the actual feel of the castle during the era of the crusades... but still a wonderful castle and city ... well worth a visit... library was also well stocked with original works.
  • Lovely hotel with a friendly vibe and close to all the historic sites of interest. Our room was beautifully decorated and we had a jacuzzi bath which was good to soak in after all the walking.
