Verified reviewvery good

Everything was good, the service and the room. What bothered me however was the fact that I had to give a signed credit card slip as guaranty when we booked in, over and above the fact that all the money has been paid in advance. I didn't mind the slip, but would have liked to get it back when I booked out. It is very dangerous to leave a signed credit card slip with somebody. I would really like to know what happened to my signed slip and what guaranty do I have that it is not going to fall in the wrong hands?
