Location is excellent, in the middle of the old town, close to sights. Rooms are comfortable and full of colonial character. Not much space to relax in the hotel outside of your room, it's a common area between reception lobby and restaurant. Hotel forgot to send airport transfer leaving me to make my own way. This was rather inconvenient given that I landed 6am in the morning and tired. They made up for this inconvenience by offering a free dinner, plus my taxi from the airport was a lot cheaper then their transfer charges so not too bad a situation. Lovely atmosphere at dinner with live classical music. concierge was good at recommendations/bookings of activities. I would love to stay here again if it didn't come with such a high price tag.
