My wife and I booked this hotel for a two day stop over. We arrived late at night using the transfer service which was very convienient and only slightly more expensive than the return taxi without the hassel of having to find a cab in a strange city.
Our welcome at the reception area was first class with the young man (Evan I think) going out of his way to set the tone for our vist to the city of which he was obviously so proud.
The location of this clean and well decorated hotel is its greatest strength. Only a few minutes walk from the major historic sites of the city and a range of restaurants it is nonetheless quite and peacful away from busy roads and noise.
The manager/owner of the hotel also welcomed us warmly the next morning and answered the few questions we had.
As has been said by previous reviewers, the view from the roof terrace is fantastic especially at night , don't miss it!!
This is a good place to stay for a short or long visit giving a great welcome and great value for money.
