Outstanding hotel, room, staff and service

This was an unexpected and most pleasant experience from start to finish. The staff on the front desk could not have been more friendly, efficient or helpful. The room was amazing. Great central location for the "real" tourists, away from the glitz of the waterfront. And value for money at a quarter of the price of some of the trendy boutique offerings. Loved it and will be back.
