There are advantages for all floors. We were slightly off to the side on the middle floor, which was great when we arrived because this was street level and could just roll the cases in.

How far away are the bars and restaurants?
The first bars and restaurants are about a 3-5 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is in the back street that runs parallel with the road that the restaurants are in. It’s an ideal hotel away from the main strip but close enough. Also there restaurants off the side roads too.
