I loved everything about the stay. Good location, clean street, walking to restaurants. Hotel is modern, comfortable and have nice vibe. Easy check in, restaurant and bar on site. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Regular retuning guest, but first time to stay in King suite. Very spacious and well designed room. Nice to have bedroom and living area separate. Espresso machine was great too ! Really enjoyed it. We did not wanted to leave. Highly recommended for anyone )))
