Individual guest reviews

  • Large rooms and the location, good Stop. The hotel is very comfortable, front of house staff are fluent in English and are most helpful, the lobby entrance is elegant, and the interior courtyard is a great renovation. An amazing department store are all a stones throw away and we really liked the window double /.

    Noisy streets and our bed was very firm and the pillows were awful.
