Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, we were welcomed by a very professional and informative lady in the reception.The Hotel was spotless clean and spacious
There's also limited parking outside so I reccomend to leave your car there and walk around the city. We stayed in Room 504 which was big and cosy with very comfortable beds! The iron in the room was broken and it was replaced with a new one within minutes, very attentive staff!
Had breakfast one of the mornings and it's very good for the price we paid, although it was not very hot when it came out so we presume it wasnt cooked to order. For lunch and cocktails my boyfriend got the pizza which he was happy with and I got the seafood chowder, which would of been very good if they didn't put extra star anise herbs in it as it gave it to much flavour and all I could taste was the herb and it ruined the beautiful chowder. But the cocktails were tasty!
For Dinner we both had the Thai Green Curry and we found it very spicy, but the lovely waitress got more cream put into it and it was perfect. The hotel had hand sanitisers on every table in the restaurant and Lobby which was a great idea as I havent seen that in any other hotels. One thing I would reccomend is putting some background music on in the lobby and bar even it being instrumental as it would of gave it a more relaxed feeling as it's the first hotel I've been to with no background music at all.
Special mention to the waitress Gulliana as she couldn't do enough for every guest, so attentive and kind always with a smile and she was the only one running the bar restaurant as we watched her and couldnt believe how hard working that girl is! Definitely a Gem to this place! as for the Blond lady in the suit, and the Bar man, I know its extremely different and hard time but wouldnt hurt to crack a smile once in a while.
Over all, a very good stay and would return.
