Hotel was great, felt quite luxury. Bed was very comfy and the room was nice! Employees were very nice and helpful. The bathroom could have used a bath but the shower was good as well! Breakfast was alright, not super special but did the trick.

I was in love with how this hotel was styled a bit retro, a bit mid century. The shower was small but very pretty, the water came out as if being poured out of a bowl. I'd never seen one like it. And my god the breakfast! It was the most legit breakfast buffet I've ever had and the food...

A nice hotel with great breakfast. The hotel could need some upgrade. Some of the rooms were a little bit outdated and need some refurbishment. The location is very central and close to many attraction.

Great room, contemporary. But it was always so hot and couldn't figure out if the A/C was on or not. The lighting in the bath was quite poor. That said, I did enjoy the stay. The staff were always smiley too :- )
