    I enjoyed the beautifully appointed room, the large bathroom and excellent shower. The staff was exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to recommend places to visit or for dinner reservations. Food at the hotel was also very good. I do not have one bad thing to say about this hotel. Would definitely go back and would recommend to a friend.

    Center of the beautiful city, nice small hotel, not very cheap, but wort to stay in it. If you come by car, ask taxi driver to go there and follow him, Almost imposible to find tha way on your own.

    Valet parking closed until 7 am. I had my flight earlier. Hotel helped me to deliver car to Avis and sent my belongings from car to me, but generally it is not acceptable.

    Desayuno y atención de un hotel 5 estrellas, gracias a booking consegui una oferta a mitad de precio con desayuno incluido y con dos tragos de bienvenida gratis a eleccion. Baños de marmol, y habitaciones majestuosas y amplias. Wifi gratis en todo el establecimiento. Las fotos condicen con lo que realmente es el hotel. Restaurant gourmet y con precios accesibles.
