Hated this hotel
They advertise free wifi but that wasn't the case. While the room size was ok the air quality was terrible very stuffy and stale especially when the air conditioner was turned on. Both of us had sore throats. Throughout our 3 day stay we never got enough towels had to ask for them every day Hotel is close to train station but it is not a very nice area a bit seedy Would never book this hotel again

Great boutique hotel
The stay was short. Got in very late and left early. The attendant was very informative about the area and amenities. He was also very attentive as the room was set up for a single person and more towels were needed. Very good boutique hotel and close to the train and buses. The morning attendant was also very attentive and informative about bus and train schedules and area sightseeing.
