Great location in walking distance of amenities

This hotel is well appointed, the staff have excellent manners and are really friendly and the location is in walking distance of the best restaurants and sights in the fort. Hire the tuktuks outside the hotel for excellent and wallet friendly tours to all the ‘todo’ tourist hot spots. (£30 for the day, plus some extra at some sights if you choose to do them).

Sehr stilvoll eingerichtet, herrvorragendes Personal! Super Frühstück. Nachteile: Unser Zimmer war das erste im oberen Stock. Es war leider sehr laut, da das Personal früh anfängt, das Frühstück vorzubereiten. Das Hotel hat keine Alkohollizenz. Man kann zwar selber mitbringen, aber an diesem Ort und mit diesem Preis wäre ein Welcomedrink angemessen.
