Good 6.0
Small and compact Hotel
The hotel is in a very convenient position for the museums and shopping. This is a small hotel and my room was very small, however it did contain all the facilities such as a hairdryer, tea/coffee making. I think that I expected more having stayed at other Melia hotels.
