one night stay in clean modern hotel near sights
Posted 27-Jun-2016 on Hotels
One night stay. Hotel parking is at another hotel 10-20 min taxi ride away. Room had no real view of the city, just the building on the other side of the pedestrian walkway in front of hotel. Third floor has a veranda with views of the University, churches and houses. Pretty and clean room looked like the web photo. Hard/firm mattress; soft bedding smelled heavily of fabric softener. Foot slippers were wet. No 2nd bar of soap for the sink; hair dryer permanently attached to bathroom wall; shower -hot water with decent pressure. Complimentary breakfast OK- they offer a choice of main dish (such as waffles) apart from fruit, granola and juice. Downside: community jam dish. They should offer single serve jam packets, like maple syrup packets they had. The materials in the hotel (both architecture and upholstery) are clean/modern. Room had double-paned glass on the 3 sets of french doors and 2 sets of curtains for privacy/dark. The glass cut most street noise except thumping from loud music outside which went on until just after midnight (Thursday). Earplugs cut most of the noise. The staff were helpful and brought out my packages and bag in the morning when I drove my car to a nearby bus stop. The hotel location is ideal, close to everything. I recommend and would stay again. 4.5 of 5.
