Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was great and on a back alley. The cafe was Closed for some reason and the only negative point is they hadn’t called the taxi for the next morning ride to the airport and We were 15 min late but it all worked out. They did put us in a suite and packed us a “brown bag” breakfast to take with us to the airport which I thought was really nice. The hotel is very quaint and beautiful architecture. I would definitely stay here again.

It's tranquil but a bit too out of the way in the suburban areas. My parents got lost trying to find the way when they went for a early morning walk

The worst hotel experience ever...
Dirty hotel.. Dust everywhere. It was also listed as 4 star hotel however it was 3 star hotel so I requested cancellation of the rest of stay to Hotels.com then I talked to the hotel manager on the next day. She said "It will be done by Hotels.com you may see the cancellation result within a week or more. We have nothing to do at this moment." However the manager did not inform it to Hotels.com and I have not gotten any refund until now.
