    I prefer these modern hotels to the old buildings! As they have been designed this century they are usually better designed. The Academia looks so spacious and I love how the wooden floors shine!

      Hi Lana. I like to mix it up a little, sometimes historic buildings and sometimes modern. You’re right about the new buildings having a better design!
