    My wife and I stayed two nights in the hotel which proved ideal for exploring the city centre sights and for providing a refuge from the heat when needed. The bathroom was a little compact but otherwise we had a very comfortable, quiet room. Breakfast...More

    Rooms are clean. Concierge service has room for improvement. Location is good. My stay was for one night only, therefore, I can not give it a fair chance. The breakfast is excellent. The staff is pleasant.

    We spent 4 nights here. The pros: great location, spacious, clean, quiet rooms. Cons: the wifi didn't work in our room. Irons and ironing boards were not available ("illegal" was reason given?). On balance I would stay here again.
