We stayed at these wonderful apartments in January. The apartment was spacious and we were delighted to discover that we had daily maid service. The building is stunning and much has already been said about the lobby and beautiful courtyard. New owners have taken over and are in the process of refurbishment. Hopefully they have taken note of the valid comments made on TA about the lack of wifi access in the rooms, loud and leaky heating. Parking was a bit difficult now and again but we always found a place within a short walk and it is free! There are plenty of boutique and modern hotels in the area and I hope the new owners recognise that the Embassy’s usp and charm lies in its old fashioned ambiance won’t interfere with its character too much. Location is terrific – an easy walk to all the bars, restaurants, shops and beach.
A special mention for the Embassy’s other key assets - the front desk staff Sean, Josh and Thea who were always helpful and pleasant. We will go back for sure.
