In the first case, the choice falls on urban hotels near the main attractions. There are many hotels ranging from cheap, but well-equipped, to stunning apartments, where everything meets the highest standards. These are elegant rooms, equipped with the latest technology overlooking the sights, swimming pools, excellent spa and fitness clubs, fine restaurants and bars, well-equipped conference centers.
