Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hotel is central. Architecture pleasing. Clean. Service good. Covid quiet. Online info misrepresented services offered. Pool not open. And restricted services eg bar. But willing to forgive in these weird times. But if you book a place regardless of when. What’s offered and paid for, should be available.
