In the center of the city, right opposite the police station, which we later found out was the cause of our remote control for the car not working, with some signal blocking out the electronics. After the car was towed away to the local Ford garage the chief mechanic recognized the problem and recommended we park much further down the road, away from the police station, which we did which resolved the problem. Its a shame the staff did not make us aware of this possible effect on some vehicles.
The hotel was modern and well fitted out and the wi-fi and tv worked well. Unfortunately the a/con did not work, however as we were on the top floor there was a large roof light which we opened to let some air in until it cooled down later in the night. There are several bars and restaurants close by where we found a good meal.
