Excellent location. Exceptional service. Spotless rooms with unlimited wifi. Decor is old fashion, but I really like that. Very good restaurant attached to hotel. I would absolutely stay again. No more really to say.

Love the upgrade of the interior. The bathroom is lovely and relaxing. The bed is comfortable and there is plenty of space. It is always a little bit of luxury away from home at a reasonable cost. So close to the city.
