We booked one of the underground rooms which was large with a decent bathroom ut a bit on the pricy side. Once the lights were out though it was really strange as there was no light at all and even after dawn nothing to wake you up - it was pitch black. An alarm clock was definitely required.
We had no heating or air con but the temperature was just constant.
The cafe for breakfast was very good and the restaurant very good but a litle on the expensive side.
Nice underground bar but I would have preferred tap beer instead of bottles although the bar prices were reasonable.
Nice pool to relax in after a day touring the area.
Finally the hotel provided transport to and from the airport which is needed as there are no taxis.
