    Great stay at Shanelo

    I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Shanelo. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and breakfast was really good. It was a bit different everyday. They have a very helpful booklet in the room that had great tips where to eat or go sightseeing. Thank you so much for a pleasent stay!
