Great hotel near National Park
Location of the hotel was great. Right on main road but quiet and view from room was to the back and very private. Large room with kitchen and sitting area. Breakfast was excellent and service very prompt and attentive. Close to many restaurants but not easy to walk as on main road. We did tour the National Park with a group scheduled through the concierge prior to our arrival and all as expected.
