What is overnight tax?
Overnight tax is a small fee charged to visitors who are staying in the country or city.

This tax is directly paid to the hotels at the time of check-in or check-out.
What about special dietary requirements ?
We will do our best to accommodate these but regret that we cannot be responsible for them. You will need to feel that you are in charge of your own diet and if necessary take vital foods with you.

Do you work with travel agents?
We are pleased to work with travel agents.

Although non-smoking rooms are available in most of hotels, we can not guarantee the availability until we confirm your reservations.
