Style in midst of Covid
If it was not for this Covid-19 junk, we might have had a better experience. For this, we will have to go back. The menus were really small, the service limited and I cannot blame the hotel for that.

Go for it!
This hotel is different. It's a boutique hotel so it doesn't have the big chain feel. In fact, everything feels unique/original and everything impresses: the decor, food, service and location are all excellent. Go for it
