As other reviewers have commented, the hotel can be a bit hard to find. However, our GPS (Magellen) took us right to it. The problem really is that the signage is not easy to spot as you are driving by it. I suspect that this is due to local restrictions and there is not much the hotel can do to make it easier to spot. Having been forewarned by reading Trip Advisor, I pulled over as we were approaching where GPS said the hotel was located in a convenient spot where local buses stop and sent one of our party ahead by foot. He returned in a couple of minutes with specific instructions on how where to stop about a block ahead. The system is to pull over and stop in the road while unloading. The staff then takes your car to their garage for you and delivers it as needed. A well practiced system that they pulled off in very impressive fashion. The interior architecture of the hotel is really beautiful and well maintained. Our room was a good size and the bathroom more than adequate but not sumptuous. We found the breakfast to be very good and the service for coffee, cappuccino, etc. to be fast and friendly. The front desk staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations and walking and driving directions. I'm not sure if others have noted this, but shopping here is very good and prices are reasonable.
