Free shuttle from the airport to the hotel, which was great!
It was a decent place for what it was. I read through all the fine print way before and wasn't surprised by anything, although the signing of a blank credit card authorization wasn't something I was too fond of. The front desk lady, Gilma, was very nice and booked me in quickly and painlessly. She was able to accommodate me with exactly the room I wanted.
The room is abit small and compressed, but again, this is a BOUTIQUE hotel, so everything naturally a little smaller. Rooms were clean, and no problem with anything in them. They have a lovely patio outside if you need some space to clear your head.The Wi-Fi is absolutely horrible though as it kept disconnecting's itself (On both my laptop and iPhone). The music was abit on the loud side, but I think that has to do with all the walls being near paper-thin. Its upbeat music playing pretty much all day from noon till 2Am. The hotel itself is very chic, and definitely not conducive to families. I would even go as far as to say its oriented for adults rather than kid-friendly.
Happy Hour is from 7-8Pm, which consists of unlimited well drinks with vodka, gin, and rum. The morning bartender, Lyn, was nothing short of amazing. He genuinely cared about making my stay a great one and even pointed me the right way in terms of food, nightlife, and tours. He was very patient with me showing me how to smoke a shisha waterpipe, and very attentive for the two nights I was there.
Location was great, as everything is within walking distance. I would stay here again with my girlfriends, but not with my kids.
