My 10-year-old daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and loved it! This hotel has old-fashioned charm and beauty. Clearly the management knows what staying in a hotel should be like, right down to the "personalized" welcome note we received at our room upon arrival. We loved the decor, curtains, soft bedding, and the over-sized bathroom (biggest I've seen in a hotel in a long time), complete with full-sized bathtub. The hotel is a little bit of walk from the center of town (about 10 minutes or so) and took us a while to find, but its location lends itself to being quieter and away from the city congestion. Every taxi driver knew where it was, so that wasn't a problem. The lobby was very comfortable and even had a chess set (enjoyed by my daughter), and the hotel staff was very helpful with all of our requests. The breakfast buffet was included and had all the usual items - cereals, fruits, toast, and hot meals to order. We were more than pleased and would highly recommend this hotel!
