The hotel was generally nice manned by a much mature staff to my surprise. The rooms were nice and spotless however it was difficult to get any sort of replenishment. The reception assumed that whatever was left on day 1 should be adequate. I think the hotel should realise its pretty hot in July and guests are normally taking showers more than usual and therefore they should be generous on bathroom supplies. This part was what I did not like about the hotel and its staff in reception - absolutely rude. For the price one pays, I am sure having stayed at many hotels now that replenishment should just be given and not questioned. The location is a little out of way so if you like pay a little bit more or look for something similar on the main streets...we spotted many on the way mainly boutique type hotels.
Also we arrived around midnite and the hotel couldn't find our fully paid reservation...took forever for them and finally we were given the keys. But instead of offering us a map of the city they simply and now its way past midnite handed us all brochures of sights they were booking....so first impressions really bad....I think hotel should really give its staff a briefing being part of a reknown chain. Making us stand so long after our flight and then explaining their tours etc.
