Memorable stay
Service from arrival to departure was impeccable, especially our interactions with Jatin and Jiri at reception. They saw to our every need and some. The room upgrades are warmly appreciated too. Excellent selection of toiletries and quality linen enhanced our experience. Nihal and 3 guests in party.

Very Good 8.0
A flawed gem
The only draw backs were that our rooms were subterranean...very dark and dreary. The hallways reaked of someone's cooking attempts. The shower flooded the bathroom floor everytime one used the shower to dangerous levels.

Great location for 3 days on Wellington
Large suite with full kitchen and even a washer/dryer. Location was great in the center of the city with shopping right there and the waterfront a short walk away. Finding the entrance by car was a challenge.
