We recently spent 2 nights at this hotel. There is a shopping center next door but it's not the most convenient location for walking to the historical sites.
The rooms were dark and dated. We requested a non smoking room but on check in was told there was only smoking left. We didn't have a choice but to take it. The second day we were moved to a non-smoking room but in all honesty - it reaked of cigarettes even more than the first room.
Staff were polite but there was no warmth in service.
Would consider other options for next time.
