This hotel is fab, however having to walk through the shopping precinct to go for breakfast to the sister hotel (Da Vinci) was a pain. There was a door linking the hotels which is not open to guests....! The roof top pool was disgustingly filthy and freezing cold - described as heated! I think not. Other than that location was great, staff were friendly and helpful.

Beautiful apartment, staff efficient and friendly. Well situated for my requirements”

The choice of restaurant for linkage to the Raphael is poor. Dinner delivered as room service was cold, tough and tasteless. At breakfast, the poached eggs were served cold and had a tough crisp top I have never seen before. The coffee cup on my table ready for filling still had lipstick on the rim. I had to go looking for a waiter to get some coffee while two stood talking to each other within full sight of me. Not impressed.
