The pictures of this hotel and the reviews don't do it justice! Some of the hotel apartments have been recently refurbished and are absolutely stunning and those that haven't are still in good condition with the expected features. The hotel is clean, welcoming, in a great location and importantly has a fantastic atmosphere. Staff speak great English and are very...
