The most notable aspect of this hotel was the staff, who were generally friendly and helpful. Many spoke English which was useful. The room cleaning staff did a good job, but we're slightly random. For example, removing the towelling dressing gown for no obvious reason, and not replacing it. However, a call to reception can sort this type of issue quickly.
My room was a good size, but lacked working space, so more suitable for a tourist than a business traveller. The hotel was quiet, which was great. After 5 nights, I never quite mastered the heating/air-conditioning, but knew I could have called for assistance if necessary.
Restaurant staff were also friendly, but not quite keeping up some of the time. Food was good and staff keen to recommend favourites, though some dishes are a little expensive.
