We picked this hotel based on user reviews and proximity to where we wanted to go. Most of the reviews were very good so we decided to go with that.
We booked the double room and were given a room at the top-most floor. Good points; relatively spacious, cool headboard, sweet bathtub, high ceiling with chandelier. Got a heck of a workout climbing all the way up and down everytime we went out. Not sure if good or bad.
Bad points; no complimentary water, coffee nor tea. When we asked the staff about that, we were told we had to pay for them at the bar or through room service. Seriously?! No shower stall so we had to shower in the bath tub that had no shower curtains, so water went everywhere. Sink was really tiny, could barely wash hands nor face properly. No iPod dock in room even though stated on website.
In short, despite the friendly staff who held our bags when we arrived early, the hotel simply didn't live up to the hype and great reviews. It certainly wasn't value for money.
Other than it's location, there was really nothing else in our stay there that made it worth the money we spent on it. Wouldn't stay there again nor recommend it to anyone else.
