The hotel was very nice and the room on the 6th floor has a very beautiful view. The staff is very friendly, especially the chef and manager at breakfast. They made us a special cake for our 2 yr anniversary as a surprise. They also got us all the traditional foods to try. My husband and I recommend this hotel!
