This hotel is everything everyone is saying it is. What stands out is the service. We arrived without a reservation and the bilingual staff made us feel very welcome. They offered us a room - one of the few times we have had a room with a double bed AND two twin beds for our kids (usually one of our kids has to sleep on the floor). They brought us chocolates and offered us complimentary coffee or wine in the evening.
The included breakfast was quite good as well.
Our room, which faced the street was a bit noisy in the early morning but very quiet all night. When we were there the hotel was installing new sound proof windows so it should be even quieter now.
It's a short walk to the center of town where you will find restaurants, etc.
One caution... Since the hotel is relatively new, no taxi driver or anyone we asked in town knew where it was. Be sure you have the address if you are arriving by bus or plan to take a taxi from bus station or airport. Literally no one knew where it was located and we did not have the address so we had to stop somewhere to get an Internet connection to find it!
