The location of the hotel is the best selling point. It is very near to the train station. Breakfast on the roof top garden is nice in both food and atmosphere. The room is clean. Staff is nice and helpful. We enjoyed a free upgrade during our stay there.

nice hotel, it was a pleasant stay. however if you are looking for a stay in the middle of the active streets, you need to look to other options as you require 10 min drive from this hotel to spanish stairs for instance which is an alive location. breakfast was good, but could have had more variety.
