Good 6,0
Wifi not very good, service poor, travel (tour) desk dreadful. Location is fantastic, hotel in decent condition, room is exactly what you need - good size and all the amenities (other than the wifi). If not for the location, this hotel would be decidedly average but the location is amazing for tourists.
