Great location with proximity to the Palace
The hotel has a great location and great bones, but it needs some refurbishment to be a true 4-star hotel. Although the lobby and restaurant area were in very good condition, the wall paper in the room and hallway was peeling in spots, as well as paint in the bathroom. The carpeting in several of the rooms we were shown was wrinkled and could have presented a trip hazard. The staff was extremely polite and helpful--they went out of their way to be of service. The room was not as quiet as it could been--motorcycles and ambulances from the nearby hospital could be heard. The restaurant had a somewhat limited dinner menu, but it was well-prepared and tasty. The buffet breakfast was outstanding. There were plenty of selections, and you could prepare your own espresso with a Nespresso machine and a good selection of coffee pods.
