I was there for 3 nights, 4 days. The hotel is among residential/semi-commercial area. It is very close to the market place, bars, pubs and eating spots.
It's first impression is as if you have entered a guest house, but that works well with the overall feel of the place. Rooms are nice, washrooms are well stacked with amenities, room has mini bar. It looks more like a family run hotel.
At this point, i would also like to point out, the management (reception, house-keeping and serving staff) are like models out of a magazine. This is good because you see so much beauty around you, at the same time, you end up doing a lot of stuff that you might want to have done for you.
Breakfast is very basic, enough to keep you going, but not many options, just eggs, cereals and bacon. Of course selection of dairy is there and salads/fruits.
The astonishing this is there is no laundry services over the weekend as the laundry is done by another shop near by, hotel does not have the facility. ironing, again, if you can do it yourself, you can get an iron and ironing board (which i had to bring myself as i didn't want the ladies to do it for me) from the reception downstairs.
Management goes away at 2300 hrs. Then you can open the door only with the room-key provided to you, otherwise you are either locked out or wait for someone coming back at that time. You still won't be able to get in your room
I did not try anything there except for breakfast, but the restaurant smelled nice so it should be good.
I prefer aircon or at least a fan, basically something that is airing the room, but it wasnt available, maybe they dont need it, but since i am used to it, i had trouble the first night, then got used to it. It's a personal interest so i cannot deduct any points for that. The city anyways is very pleasant, temperature wise.
personally, it is a very relaxing spot, close to everything and nice clean housing. I am back there in January, and will definitely be staying here only!!!
