Good central hotel
Nice hotel, very centrally located for all of the tourist spots, transport, shopping and restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Took cognisance of my mobility problems and I was given a room on the ground floor just off reception. Unfortunately like many hotels there are no plugs by the side of the bed. This is not a frivolous need for me as I use a CPAP machine on a nightly basis.
