We stayed a total of 5 nights at the Impressive and were very happy with it. As other reviewers note, there were lifts, cheap laundry service, friendly and helpful staff and a fresh and plentiful buffet breakfast with a choice of hot dishes if required. The food was great. I also really appreciated that when we booked in they sat us down for a welcome snack and drink which made you feel right at home. Can't fault the location. We had room 803 which had a large balcony and overlooked the Cathedral so we were very pleased with that. I also liked the fact that you could book and pay for a car to the airport via the hotel, and didn't have to go to the effort of bartering once again! The going rate was cheaper (USD12) than you would get if you went out independently to get a ride with a taxi.
All advice about times for travel and reasonable prices to pay for souvenirs was also greatly appreciated.
The only downside was the shower, lack of pressure and intermittent hot and cold. Probably only an issue because we were there in Winter and it was chilly when we were showering. Otherwise a cold or cool shower would have been fine.
Thanks to everyone at the hotel for making our stay so pleasant.More
