The location is excellent for the colonial part of town. The staff are excellent and very helpfu, friendly and efficient. Breakfast was included and delicious. Our room was an executive double, which is not in the original part of the building but within a modern extension surrounding a courtyard area. The room was spacious and with a very comfortable bed. The restaurant, bar and gym was closed as it was under renovation, which we were not made aware of when booking. They operate a butler system, who basically gets you anything you may need and serves you breakfast within the attrative open courtyard area. The rooms have partitioned walls, not brick, so you will hear people talking and eating outside in the courtyard while you are in the room. We did not hear the traffic nor the adjacent nursery school (as it was the weekend). One morning we were lead to a table directly outside someone elses room, which we found a bit disconcerting as their window was open and we could hear the occupants talking in their room while we were eating. You are provided with ear plugs but we did not need them. The pool is a plunge pool and not a proper swimming pool. These minor issues did not spoil our stay and it was a real pleasure stepping into this hotel which was an oasis.
