This hotel gives off the impression that it is an upmarket luxury boutique hotel. It most certainly is not. At best it is three star.
Good location if you have a car. There are better options if you have to use a taxi or walk.
Rooms are clean and fairly new.
Poor value for money. This hotel would receive a higher rating if it's pricing was more in line with its value proposition. Upscale hotel rates for something slightly better than a Holiday Inn chain.
Upstairs bar has a good view but pretty cheap looking. Not to mention the food is sometimes clearly yesterday's leftovers reheated.
Pool is very tiny.
Service is hit or miss. Staff is helpful with restaurant suggestions and taxis. My arrival was a bit mediocre as no oneoffered assistance with my luggage as I struggled wit five suitcases. Room service can be sloppy.
