Very Good8.0
The hotel is quite nice although special if you're used to 4 star hotels in the US. The staff were all very pleasant. The only problem was that our safe did not work and the alarm went off. While we were able to muffle it by closing the closet door it took 24 hours with four reports to get it fixed. The location is perfect!
