Do not book this hotel if you have luggage!!

Near the city center, proximity to restaurants and views
Dirty and smelly bathroom, dirty towels and bed sheets. The hotel is on the hill and taxis and cars do not go there. Hence, be careful, if you are traveling with luggage and small children, be prepared to walk with your luggage to the top of the hill in order to arrive at the hotel. If you have heart or blood pressure problem, I would strongly recommend that to you do not stay in this hotel.

Good place to stay but you need to be able bodied

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel, the breakfast menus need to be upgraded for a four star hotel we expected a bit more variety and better standard. The staff were very helpful and courteous
