2/10 Poor

I don’t recommend this property - the bathroom was not clean, we found dirty socks near the curtains, the door card reader was reading that needs housecleaning service (it was in red) but the front desk told us it should be like this. On top of it the morning of the check out someone enter our room (not a housekeeper I think it was a guest of the hotel) while we were trying to leave. Absolute disappointment. The hotel has plenty of good rated restaurant we wanted to try. The coffee bar/garden area didn’t seem to welcome anyone and made us feel uncomfortable. Not knowing what type of espresso they serve, not knowing what desserts they offer, and served us warm water - 10 min later the ice came but it wasn’t needed anymore. The Italian restaurant was good - atmosphere great, cocktails very presentable, food was just ok. I’ll be contacting the manager of the hotel to address my complains about the stay itself.

Not bad but it doesn't deserve the price.
Too overpriced. Also a renovation/repair is needed to the hotel's rooms and a couple of the staff to be polite.
