My husband and I stayed in March and the room was great with a nice big bathroom and tub. I especially enjoyed the view of the park from our window day and night. The breakfast buffet helped to fortify us for a day of site seeing which was close by.

I stayed at this hotel early June and had a very pleasurable experience. We payed an extremely affordable price for a wonderful location, great room and luxurious bathroom! It is perfectly situated near the royal palace, with easy access to most of the city. I would stay here again and again!
