Excellent hotel

This hotel is amazing, situated so close to the mall which has every shop from Prada to H&M, service was really good very friendly staff, the rooftop bar very hip and lively, San restaurant didn't have a very broad menu however when the food did arrive it was really good. Hotel staff were very accommodating as our flight arrived 8am and our return flight was 10pm, they allowed us early check in and late check out at no extra charge, I will definitely without a shadow of doubt be returning to this hotel, worth every penny!
