10/10 Exceptional

The hotel is very conveniently located in the center of the shopping and banking area. The experienced staff are ready with any kind of assistance, from the Bell hop and Front Desk clerek teo the waiters and bartenders. I've stayed here many times and never had a bad experience. However there are a few things perhaps they coild look at. Our room was sparsely furnished with only the bed, night tables and a desk and chair. There was no sofa or armchair in the large room. Also there was no literature whatsoever in tshe desk drawers. There are plenty of outlets for PC, mobiles etc. We were out one day and had put a do not disturb sign on the door. We removed it at 6pm and when we came home the room was made up clean! I definately would stay here again. They arranged pickup at the airport which was faultless. Just a few small things, that's all!
