We had an inner room here and were not all that impressed. We paid an effective 160 a night after all the extra fees were applied and feel like we could have gotten a much better value elsewhere. The noises outside the hotel (traffic etc...) were not audible to our delight, but the noise inside the hotel was VERY audible in our room. We could even hear the receptionist answering the phone.
I will say that all but one staff member was excellent, polite and helpful. The only one that was not was the cleaning lady who never said hello, to you or back to you, and never smiled, she was actually a bit scary.
The bathroom also left a lot to be desired, there were these odd yellow stains on the marble next to the toilet, my husband assured me urine cannot do that but that is exactly what it looked like. The coffee at breakfast was good but other then the individualy packaged cereal everything else was fairly stale, and there was not much else, no cooked food at all.
Location was the highlight for us, we were able to do everything we wanted without renting a car, and the dozens of resturants within a two minute walk made the trip worth it.
