We stayed here for two nights in February . The Arpana is a lovely hotel with great ambience. The room was very comfortable, light, airy and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful, very nice people. The restaurant was good and very reasonably priced. Very happy to recommend this hotel and we would like to stay again.
