Pretty much faultless
Amazing! Couldn't fault this hotel. The only recommendation would be more access to tourist info - the map provided by the hotel was not really informative in that regard.

Exceptional 10.0
The hotel is beautiful and the staff is amazing. I feel like they could up their foid game a bit. The breakfast buffet and breakfast room service leave a little to be desired. But overall, would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

Felipe, usRomance trip
Very good 8.0
Class act service
The hotel had exceptional service and the room we had was clean and very comfortable, the neighborhood had a few good restaurants near by and a pharmacy. There was a bank with ATM'S at the corner and a great Restaurant/Coffee shop around the other corner both less than 5 min. walk. I was able to get a small personal pizza and a pasta to go and let me tell you it was delicious! You can also sit outside in a cafe style setting, I think it was called Coffee Max it was a small Canteen type bus or trailer. Loved it! The hotel has a pool but the location is rather strange being next to a wall and the lounge chairs in a different area.Hotel restaurant and bar were charming,but the breakfast buffet food was on the cold side temperature wise. My real and only complaint was it took 3 phone calls and over 1 hour to have our television repaired and 2 phone calls for ICE they dont have it on floors, it needs to come from the bar. They do have washing machines on each floor along with washers 2 .50 and dryers were 3.50 but they worked fine. You will need Quarters.
