We booked this hotel for a some mother/daughter time in the city. Excellent location to many favorite shops and close to the market. The only thing that I would have loved is a mini bar in the room or a microwave for late night snack or leftovers.

We were coming from turkey, and the stuff expected us to understand them as they speak. They were not rude but somehow not helpful i can say. The restaurant and the bar was always full while we were there and the visitors were mostly the locals which i felt that the tourists are not so much welcomed. Hotel was ordinary,...

The hotel had a great feel. People were relaxed and having fun. Staff were attentive and the wine socials each evening wonderful. Frolick seemed to be a local hotspot so it could be hard to get in at times.

TLDR: Average Hotel, awesome roof top bar Hotel is nothing special in terms of the rooms and service; however, the location & the the roof top bar make it worth the price. Room service attention to detail could use work, I was given all decaf coffee twice!
