      4/5 Good

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
      • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

      I appreciated that everything was clean. The desk staff was pleasant, with 1 who seemed to be in training. He was pleasant and asked for help when he needed it, rather than guessing while we waited for service. On the other hand, 2 of the 3 elevators were out of service. With my wheelchair, we had to wait every day thru 4-5 elevators as there was no room for us.

      Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2019

      5/5 Excellent

      Nice place to stay in. The hotel was lovely few steps away from the Hyde Park. I liked that there was a neighboring petrol station with convenience store for snacks and bottle of water for my morning walk.
