If it wasn't for the travel agent's driver, I guess we will never be able to find this apartment hotel.

Great hotel in a very nice part of town. Stylishly furnished rooms that are sursprisingly sound proof in spite of down town location. The staff was extremely helpful and service oriented and gave us a free upgrade.

It was very comfortable and bright, and a kettle, coffee maker, tea, and even 2 stovetops were provided in the room. We were on the 2nd floor, so we could hear... More
