10/10 Exceptional

Very unpretentious hotel, in a great location. Panorama restaurant was very busy on a Friday night, but the food and the service were excellent. The room lacked a few amenities, but it was there for only one night, so i didn’t mind.

6/10 Good

Service failings in a big way
The hotel is well located for the old historic city and with good transport links. One lady on reception was amazing and so helpful - re-booking some of my sightseeing visits. But the hotel services left a lot to be desired. - as there for 5 nights but on 2 days there was no housekeeping at all due to staff shortages. Breakfast also did not exist (just a coffee and a muffin. There was also no laundry service. For a hotel at this price and of this supposed rating this was not acceptable. However the lady at reception was absolutely wonderful.
