We had asked for a smaller, cozier hotel rather than a big chain. This hotel couldn't have met our expectations any better. The food was fantastic--served in a lovely outdoor setting by attentive staff--definitely have the fish amok!! The room was small but more than adequate, and the bathroom was absolutely beautiful and completely functional--even with a fairly well lighted magnifying mirror. The bar was willing to provide ice for us to use for an evening cocktail on our balcony overlooking the city. We had a few problems with the Internet--basically it just didn't work sometimes, and other times it worked only in the reception area. And our safe didn't work. But in both cases, the service was prompt, friendly, and helpful--and I would have to say that we would return in a heartbeat. Oh, and there are other great restaurants within easy walking distance. This hotel is actually in a busy part of town, but once you are inside the gates, you feel like you are a million miles away.
