Some days ago the list of the ten best hotel breakfasts of Spain in 2015 was published by Trivago.

We started imagining why he was here: “Maybe he´s writing an epic novel about the battles between Arabs and the kingdom of Castilla”, Giuseppe said. “Or a love story between a Muslim king and a Christian princess full of secret meetings in fancy castles”, Saray said.

And he is just 25 years old.
Mi Habitación Favorita (My Favorite Room Cafe) is open 24 hours. But there is a time of day when our cafeteria shines in its own merit: the snack time.
