The location is very central and convenient if you are not a tourist that only want to visit Historical Peninsula. The lobby is modern and the staff was very friendly during my stay.
The rooms are comfortable and well decorated. The one that I've stayed was a regular room with sea view on upper floors. I really enjoyed especially the bath tub with a window outside.
The only con was the room size. Its very small. It seems are they almost equally divide the area for room and bathroom.
The roof bar is nice. It needs some improvement with their menu of spirits.
By the way its totally not possible to smoke in this hotel without getting wet when its raining. The roof bar balcony and non of the public places outside of the hotel entrance are covered. Thats a very important detail which the management should notice.
I would definetly stay there again.
