The hotel is very centrally located. The rooms are large, big enough for two large suitcases to be on stands.
The beds are comfortable. The elevators are tiny and seem as if they need major repairs.
The breakfast is decent. However the staff start running around and clearing up be 10, although the breakfast service continues till 10.30.
The staff at the desk and the breakfast room are helpful and sweet.
The Pool terrace was shut and that was disappointing as i had read that the view was good.
I would stay at this hotel for the location, near restaurants, shops and major tourist attractions
