A very pleasantly appointed hotel. Good location close to the main streets. The reception, lounge area, dining room all nicely decorated and furnished, there is a lovely atmosphere in the hotel. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine, the usual choices, though on our last morning the hot option (scrambled eggs) was off the menu. We were told there was no-one on duty able to cook them!? Take care not to take anything for lunch! There are clear signs banning such tactics; one embarrassed lady had to empty her swag bag when spotted by the eagle eyed supervisor shovelling cakes and a hastily made sandwich into her rucksack. On our tour of South America it was quite amusing watching the various tactics adopted to smuggle breakfast items. Heaven forbid! Well we have to admit to the odd apple.
Our double room was pleasantly furnished in keeping with the rest of the hotel, everything was there you would expect and everything worked. The major problem we experienced was dogs! (There is also the issue of so many dogs freely roaming the streets). Our lovely room (102) faced a neighbouring residential area where everyone had a dog kennelled outside at night. Consequently at various intervals, one dog would suddenly start barking to be joined by a chorus of others, not helped by single glazed windows. We stayed 3 nights and had repeated disturbances each night. We were surprised the hotel had not installed double or even triple glazing as it must be a perpetual problem for guests. It was the only blemish from our experiences at the hotel, but 3 nights of repeatedly disturbed sleep after tiring days is not good. If you are considering booking, specify a 'quiet' room if such a thing exists?
