The consumption of snuff is harmful to health, so we invite all our employees and guests to not consume cigarette, avoiding collateral damage in nonsmokers. Our hotel includes notices of smoke space free.

The snuff not only affects the body internally, these are some of the external results.

1. Prepare for eye dark circles and bags even if you sleep well (which is rare if you smoke before going to bed).
2. Forget the Hollywood white smile, and get ready to give a warm welcome to yellow and stained teeth.
3. Smoking causes wrinkles. Experts say that smoking accelerates aging, because it blocks the blood that keeps the skin looking young and healthy.
4.Yellow teeth are not unique, your fingers will be yellow too.
5.The smoke also affects the hair, makes it thin and gray hairs appear at an earlier age.
6.Nicotine causes blood vessels to become narrower, which also causes that scars take longer to heal and be larger.
7.Finally, prepare to lose your natural shine.
