We stayed here after completing our tour. Staff were helpful and rooms were beautiful, very avant garde with hermes toiletries, plush bath robes and great showers. The restaurant in the hotel is very nice with a good menu. Staff were very helpful and you could walk to many excellent shopping places or bus stops to get to other locations. Our... More

I would return! The hotels has so many good things going for it that it makes up for room size. The size was not cramped, but the closet door did not have a full swing without hitting the bed. The rooms were different sizes in the same category since a friend did not have this problem. The rooms were clean... More

Warm welcome, efficient check in. Unfortunately was the room allocated to us not the room we booked (Junior Suite with river view). Although we had proof of booking, it took the reception 20! Minutes to give us the booked room. Dissapointing for a returning guest and AClub Gold member. The hotel needs refurbishing, makes a worn out impression. Bar and... More
