The hotel was in a great location and had a beautiful view from the top. It was within walking distance of much to do in the area, only a few blocks from the start of the hop-on/hop-off bus tours, outdoor markets, shopping malls, places to eat, and a lot more. There was a Starbucks just 2 blocks away for mornings, and a lot of eating places in the same open area. The bed was comfortable, and the rooms slightly larger than standard Europe hotel rooms. The bathroom was a bit cramped, but the shower was reasonable so no problems. The elevator was very small and enclosed, but the stairs were reasonable to go up and down other than when I had my suitcase. My biggest complaint was that while I was in a non-smoking room there was an off and on strong odor of smoke that was really strong - I finally realized that the front desk workers would go outside to smoke and it would drift up to my room. It made it very difficult to be in the room at times, but that was really the only problem I had.
