Fantastic location with short walking distance to the CBD. Lovely roomy accommodation with plenty of surface area for handbags and toilets bags etc. Greeted by very friendly hotelier. Very helpful. Only thumbs down was the mattress. The high end quality of the Palazzo was not reflected in the type of Mattress used in our room. Very poor nights sleep with movement disturbance and could have been bigger.

Thanks for your review. Yes we have 2 rooms with out any Balcony or Patio. Sorry that you did not get one with one. On the up side, they are the quietest rooms we have, placed in the back of the complex.
