Great Experience :)
Service was extraordinary. Despite some of the challenges the hotel was facing with some renovation, they truly went above and beyond to provide breakfast, convenience and they answered our questions with a huge smile. I’ve never seen friendlier staff. The hotel was also in an excellent location, close to everything we wanted to see. The room was a great size and very clean and comfrtable. I look forward to staying again.

Nice hotel but currently under renevation
Overall this is a very nice hotel, but unfortenately Hotels.com failed to inform that the hotel is currently undergoing some renovations and for example the roof terrace and kitchen are closed. And those were the two main reasons I chose to stay in this hotel instead of an other one. So, due to the renevation we didn't get breakfast buffet even thouhg it was stated to be included in the room price and missed the perfect city view that you could've enjoyed if the roof terrace would've been open.
