The room was large with plenty of room and nice amenities. Our only complaint was the room was very warm and we couldn't open a window or get the a/c to turn on to cool it off. Dinner at the bar was good with friendly staff and inexpensive prices for a hotel bar. The hotel was a little further away...

However the kitchenette doesn't have any cutlery or kitchenware that it's practically useless. On my first night, I called the reception to ask for an iron and an iron board, and after...

We stayed at this hotel in August, the location was great, we could either take a stroll into town or catch a taxi ease. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly during our stay, it was a wonderful stay at this hotel from start to finish.

I stayed at this hotel on a group tour. I would chosen something more central to the old city-but this hotel was lovely-the room was HUGE and had a bathtub and was well appointed in all ways. The dinner for the group was lovely also and well served and varied
