For me, the location is one of the important determining factor when choosing where to stay, so no wonder that it’s one of the best parts of my hotel experience.
From the moment that I stepped in the lobby I was impressed. Design and interior of the hotel is very chic and elegant. Lobby is large and well lit from a giant window which overlooking the port. The staff was very friendly and as soon as I walked into my room I received a box of chocolate and cookies and a lovely welcome note. Which is always appreciated when travelling.
