It's not often when you come across a hotel whose service is so impressive that it completely surprises you. Upon check-out, we had to leave the hotel very early to go to the airport. It would have been before breakfast was normally served. Upon exiting the elevator early in the morning, we found a portable table with two chairs waiting for us in the lobby with an excellent assortment of breakfast foods. There are other examples of excellent service on this stay that warranted this review.
Unfortunately, we stayed on the second floor of the hotel facing a public square in this vibrant city. There are definite sound abatement issues that have to be addressed. That is the only reason that I didn't give this hotel 5 stars.
