They took pride in providing great service at the front desk, serving breakfast, and any other request I had. As you can tell from other reviews, the... More

Loved the hotel from the moment we entered the lobby. Every detail was perfect. From the staff to the room to the great view from the terrace. We were ground zero in the old city and footsteps from the major attractions.
