8/10 Very good

The building and space was as advertised. Service was slow and unable to serve cocktails in the advertised bar in the hotel. I stayed two nights and this hotel was transitioning from being owned by Best Western to privately owned during my stay which may have contributed to the limited service ability.

It’s beautiful, with a beautiful view of hills. Unique rooms in old-school architecture. Bathroom sink was tiny to fit, but the shower was sizeable and modern. I walked into the city center, which was a healthy hoof, but the hotel is right on the 11 bus route…super convenient.
