Lonely Planet review
This place has got plenty of the niceties of a top-end hotel: broadband connection in each of the pretty rooms, swimming pool, a cosy bar and a popular restaurant, for a much better rate than the grand hotels.
This understated place just needs a few finishing touches in decor, neatness and service to become a sought-after top-end hotel. The facilities are right - there are broadband connections in all rooms, a large swimming pool outside, car hire and cash machines available in the lobby. The whole place is decorated in a curious blue-orange theme, taken so far that it can become a bit oppressive. Rooms are well appointed; try to get one on a higher floor with a view of the street - they're brighter.
