    Property is nicely located and has a very nice rooftop bar/restaurant. We stayed their twice in May. We were in room 403 on our first trip, which was both nice with extra windows and high enough to avoid street noise. On our second stay, we were in room 202, which had only a single window yet was noisy. I would recommend eating at the hotel restaurant, Atico. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced.

    Excellent Hotel centrally located

    This hotel was very nice and the personnel were very helpful. We were welcomed warmly and they were even able to accommodate our early arrival which was super appreciative. They even helped us find a place to get our mediatory Covid test (insert eye roll here) to enter the US. The lobby and roof terrace were spectacular and for my 19 year old daughter, was a hit for Instagram pictures (insert another eye roll. hahaha). Things as a traveler, I would want to know: The rooms are spacious and surprisingly quiet at night given the location. The beds are on the firm side but roomy and comfortable. They don't have a ton of outlets in the room, and you will need an adapter (for deep sockets) if not from Europe. Our adapters have a plug adapter plus 2 USB ports so that worked. The bathroom is beautiful but not a ton of storage or counter space. We had to put things on the floor or on a shelf out in the room. In a perfect world they would have a shelf under the sink to store things. The shower is an open shower concept which I normally don't particularly care for because I get cold, but there is a large towel warmer that keeps the room nice and toasty. They have full-sized shampoo, conditioner and body gel bottles so that is nice not having to get a ton of the little bottles. The room temperature was easily controllable and comfortable, and the windows can open. Overall we would definitely stay again. Very upscale and central to everything. We had a great stay!

    The staff was amazing and the shower was the second best we had on oir trip. The only two issues were the room is small and they don't have a spa so the massage we booked happened in a small room off the bar. We could hear doors slamming the entire time. It was an above average massage.
