I enjoyed staying here. It's conveniently located with public transportation handy. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Merry was particularly helpful when we encountered a problem. The breakfast saved time and money. It was on the rooftop which gave us a spectacular view of the city and seafront.

This hotel location is good. And staff are very kind. But, I can't sleep until 1AM. Because, I heard something like club music sound until 1 AM. If you get the room 206, you must change other room. 호텔 위치는 좋습니다. 스테프들은 매우 친절합니다. 그런데, 새벽 1시까지 잠을 잘수가 없었습니다. 클럽 같은 쿵쾅거리는 소리가 새벽 1시까지 이어 졌습니다. 만약 206호...

We loved this hotel. An historic building turned into a hotel-beautiful marble and brasswork, the room was comfortable and well decorated. The bid soaking tub was nice, too.
