I can't compliment the staff enough - everyone was incredibly helpful. The front desk people were great getting us taxi's, answering questions, and making phone calls for us. It was the best hotel service I've gotten in a very long time. Our room was clean, tidy, and comfortable. The reason for my average rating came about midnight when I was clearly able to listen to normal conversations that were occurring in the courtyard. Our room was on the upper level and was overlooking the courtyard which was a great view. I've been in rooms that had thin walls, but somehow it seemed like the sounds were amplified. People were just normally talking and it woke me from a dead sleep, and I'm a heavy sleeper. I thought there was someone either in my room or standing directly outside. When I opened the door, I saw a few people hanging out in the courtyard having a very normal, low key conversation. I also got to hear every detail of my neighbors morning romp, and I thought they were using my shower after since it was so loud in my room.
I would stay here again. The staff was really, really great. Beyond great. The room was clean, the breakfast was hot and tasted great. Staying for one night it worked well, but if I was there for three or four nights, I think being woken up by those tiny noises would have added up. If you do stay here (again, I recommend staying here) then get something outside the courtyard, they have a building that's to the left of the main one we stayed in. That way you can get all the great stuff I talked about, with a bit more quiet.
