The hotel, located about 10 minutes walking distance from the city center, was really quite stunning upon entering. The interior decor was astonishing. The lobby is arranged with an abundance of chandeliers which gave it a luxurious charm. The front desk personnel were extremely accommodating and helpful. The room itself was actually quite large and inviting, much to my surprise....
