Usually don’t leave any reviews but this hotel excel our expectations. Well located, very nice stuff (Gartano was great). Our room was clean twice a day and breakfast buffet Wes really good . Really love this hotel.

Beautiful townhouse with lots of British charm. The staff was very nice and helpful. We were on the top floor and thought it was cozy and charming . Some people may not like the stairs ( no elevator) and may think the room is too small. Will definitely come back on my next trip.

Compact but very stylish, with very friendly and highly attentive staff, and a breakfast that delightfully surprises. Would definitely stay here again.

Broken ac... but I didn’t let them know. Nice desk staff. ......
