    Bang for your buck
    great hotel on a great location. I couldn’t fault it. It is not one of the big name hotels but I think this is better value than them. Great design, service, food and swimming pool. Comfortable luxurious room.

    Basking in Bastion
    The Bastion was beautiful and chic! Staff was extremely thoughtful and helpful, and rooms were so spacious and comfortable. And location was central to all the great shops and restaurants. A truly special stay.

    Posh & worth it
    AMAZING service, rooms, amenities, IT IS under renovations AND elevator gets turned off at nights, but everything else makes up for it. Great location and Customer oriented make it posh and worth the price tag

    Friends trip
    Everything was pristine here, so clean and beautiful design. Great service and friendly staff. Only two things that were weird to me: The elevator was being maintained a few times during our stay so we had to walk up a few flights of stairs to get to the pool which was fine for us but I imagine frustrating for anyone with mobility issues. We ordered a cheese plate to room service and I had to ask 3 times for crackers or some sort of bread - each time they would bring a few pieces only, definitely not enough for all the cheese. They ended up charging me the third time I asked - I am fine to pay extra but when I called room service and asked for crackers they said it came with the cheese plate and I didn't expect to have to pay $4 dollars for 3 crackers.

    Very good 8.0
    Beautiful hotel!
    Beautiful hotel in an excellent location in the old city a better location in the old city than the area near the clock. Less crowded but with just as much to see and explore. The rooftop pool was lovely and the complimentary mango drink was a nice touch. The room was very clean and beautiful with great shower pressure and the breakfast had a large selection and great fruit!! Service was also wonderful other than the man who checked me in. I found him a little unwelcoming and also after I arrived at my room and got settled in he called me and said I put you in the wrong room and moved me and he didn't even apologize he seemed to just have a bit of an attitude. Other than that I would recommend this hotel

    Stayed for 3 nights from a Fri - Monday. Great location just close enough to all restaurants and shops but on a quiet block. Fantastic staff and service. Great food in the restaurant and at the rooftop bar. Delicious breakfast included. Couldn’t ask for better value. Highly recommended!

    5 stars!
    The hotel and customer service were both incredible! The tone of our stay was set as we were greeted with warm welcomes and refreshing drinks that were very tasteful. The rooms were beautiful; the rooftop has a comfortable lounge with a pool and nice view; the complimentary breakfast at the restaurant was fantastic; and the concierge, Jordan, was very helpful. Zero complaints. Highly recommend! P.S. Enjoy spa day while you’re there!
