The hotel is clean, quiet and very secure. The employees are extremely helpful and very professional. The room was larger than we expected and classy in appearance. The only thing I would suggest is that they provide 220-volt to110-volt adapters for the North Americans that arrive not knowing that Europe runs on 220 volts. We could not charge our camera, I-pod and computer batteries while we were there.
The pool is small but clean and there is enough area to catch some rays on the roof by the pool.
The hotel restaurant is expensive but there are so many options to eat at a reasonable price around the hotel it’s not a problem. You should be aware that the prices posted at the restaurants around the hotel are for inside dining; patio dining is 10% more.
We would stay there again without hesitation.
