This hotel was just slightly disappointing. From reviews, I had expected something rather special. It was in fact totally acceptable and comfortable, but not really unique in any memorable way. The superior room (which costs more) was large, though the double bed was 2 singles pushed together so in effect you sleep in a single bed, with a good sized bathroom and nice walk in shower. The old polished wooden floor creaked and groaned - no real problem for me, but I worried for any people below. I had real problems with wifi on most days, but this may have been a wider city problem. The staff were very pleasant and the restaurant - KuDeTa- is really very good indeed. On advantage of this place is that it is surrounded by good restaurants, mostly within a block - so walking at night is not an issue. So - no real issues - I just felt slightly let down for the price. I also stayed elsewhere in Tana - Chalet des Roses - for half the price, yet the room was comparable.
