Good position, and friendly, obliging service

Pros: The service, and the ambience.
Cons: In this category of Hotel, nothing. It was perfect for me. The only downside was the lack of a lift to my room on the 3rd floor, but I survived!
Location: Within transport distance of the city centre, and walking distance of the National Records Office - the purpose of my visit.
This is a very comfortable hotel with very friendly, obliging staff. It is well situated for transport, restaurants and a good connection to the airport. Thanks for excellent service.
