In Gran Baita the focus on cleaning and sanitizing have always been our style of hospitality. We believe that the guarantee of hygiene must be able to combine with environmental sustainability and that is why the cleaning system made with Menikini machines with 180 ° dry steam in synergy with a virucide, is the solution chosen to guarantee the sanitization of surfaces and of the fabrics of our rooms as well as of the common areas.
Care of cleanliness and love for pets coexist peacefully in Gran Baita. The hotel accepts dogs and cats, upon notification by the owners.
