This hotel is gorgeous! It was fun just to wander around the hotel stumbling upon different rooms within the hotel (was an old monestary). We stayed on the 3rd floor-we had great views of the city from our window. The room was gorgeous was well-it had a chandelier with ceiling paintings-was very roomy-had a jacuzzi shower-roomy bathroom-big roomy bed-beautiful windows to open, a little sitting area to read-a mini fridge and a safe-a writing desk...oh and a.c! ( It was a hot one while we were here so the a.c. was heavenly). The room and hotel as a whole was very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast area was very nice-good views of the city-and the food was pretty good. The swimming pool was great! it is alittle smaller but was not crowded-and while it has very nice views of the city on the one end of the upper floor with the pool on it it also has nice little trees and flowers that make you feel like you are in a little wilderness oasis. We loved swimming in the pool....when it was open. It is only open from 9 till 5-which we were kinda bummed about the first night-we were looking forward to cooling off in the pool after walking around for a good 30 minutes in the heat with our backpacks on trying to find the hotel (it really isn't too hard to find we just got mixed up-there is a bus stop directly across the street from the hotel or if you hang a left outside of the hotel and go down some stairs down the road it leads you out to a station (probably 10 minute walk)- but once we got to our cold room we were happy enough to just hang out in there. There are a few little shops within walking distance down the road. The rooms were pretty quiet. Overall we really really liked the hotel- It was a beautiful hotel and at a decent price. I only wish that gorgeous swimming pool was open longer throughout the day!
