The location is great, very central to many sights. Staff was helpful, friendly, professional! Breakfast was also very tasty. The fresh yoghurt and cheese were unexpected but excellent. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Pricey for what you “get”

First off I had to change my booking from 3 nights to two. I made the change in the hotels.com app however my original room for some reason was no longer available so I had to settle for a smaller room. But my price was the same! Hotel location was great. Check in was simple. Love that they offered free bottled water anytime. Room appearance was great but that’s where it ended. There was no shampoo in the bathroom. Had to walk down to reception to ask for some. Bed was squeaky. Any movement made noise. The moisturizer bottle, which is mounted to the wall was empty. The TV was tiny and old and had a burned out line of pixels running through it. The cleaning people were extremely loud. Shouting to each other, moving furniture around and constantly slamming doors. Be courteous to people trying to sleep! The elevator can only fit one person and a bag of luggage so I opted for the stairwell. I walked down 3 flights only to be stopped by huge piles of towels that were blocking the stairwell. That’s not only an inconvenience since I had to turn around and walk back up the stairs with my luggage, but it’s a fire hazard. Look I get it, some things get missed but for the price of this hotel everything should be perfect and it was far from that.
