Breakfast was truly continental. The only protein available was in yogurt. Add eggs to make it more inviting. The room was pretty quiet and little noise heard in adjacent rooms. Bed was like a rock but surprisingly we slept very well. Rooms adequate in decorations though spartan. Maid staff took soap and towels without replacement. That was a nuisance. Convenient to town but really disliked the metal outdoor steps to second floor which I had asked not to be our room assignment.

Stayed for 2 nights in second floor room. Room was clean and up do date, bath area is a bit small but overall I would stay here again.

Room was ok. Phone did not work and had to go to desk to get a new one which was also an inconvenience because stairs are difficult for me and my friend so every trip up and down the stairs was a challenge. We were not informed that the room was on the second floor when booking and the elevators were not available.
I spent two nights as planned and paid a very high rate to stay in hotel and had no room service. My trash not emptied, bed not made for me and I had to again ask for clean towels. I did not eat breakfast in your establishment because everything was cold cereal,muffins etc. No fruit or anything warm was offered.
