I spent 6 nights in the hotel and the service was amazing. Security was so ridiculously visible and efficient. It felt so safe to tour the amazing landmarks in the hotel premises. The food served in terms of variety and taste was awesome and offered more than value for money.

The hotel was nice, comfortable and clean. The personnel was welcoming and available. The security was also in point. In fact every visitor is checked at the entrance, so are cars coming to the hotel parking lot.

How much one pays for Swimming?
If you are a guest nothing, but I am not sure what you would pay if you are not a guest or whether they even let non-guest into the hotel to swim. They have a gym for non-guests so I imagine access to the pool is somehow linked to Gym membership.
