Very good 8.0
Great location, clean and comfortable. The only thing I would suggest to the hotel is put more than 2 packs of shampoo and shower gel. We take shower at night and in the morning and we have to ask for extra shampoo and shower gel for both nights.

Lovely hotel
Lovely hotel in a fantastic location. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the hotel’s air conditioning was still on winter setting even though it was 24 degrees outside. This made the nights very uncomfortable for sleeping. After 2 nights a fan became available which did help.
