Immaculate Hotel close to Palace.
My stay was from Friday to Sunday. The property was well kept and in prime location of all the historical sites and museums I wanted to see. On arrival I was greeted with warm welcomes. There was a little miscommunication in regards to having a ID number to track for COVID purposes but it worked out. The room was perfect. I had a great View of the Palace and it was within walking distance of all the sites I wanted to see. Over the stay was amazing. I wish I took advantage of the breakfast but unfortunately I woke up late bother days.
