Our suite consisted of two rooms, one with a sitting area, a couch and two chairs and a large desk, perfect for the computer, and windows that opened. The bedroom was equally spacious with a most comfortable king size bed and crisp bed linens. The bathroom had a bathtub, huge walk in shower, towel warmer and table for toiletries and plenty of fluffy towels. The walk in closet was a bonus.
The living room was transformed into the breakfast room with white tablecloths, very satisfying breakfast food and delicious coffee.
The location is perfect, quiet and safe. The walled garden is a oasis from the crowds.
The best part is the most accommodating staff who were always happy to assist you. They printed out our boarding passes and on the day of our departure the hotel owner called a water taxi, walked us out and placed our bags in the taxi. Most accommodating indeed!
