We had a good 3 night stay at Altair, and appreciated very good staff and service. The hotel is modern, clean and lovely, though our rooms were quite small. Windows open and in July at least the street was not very noisy. The hotel has air conditioning, but it's an odd system by American standards...if a window somewhere is open, the system draws that air in and makes the a/c less cold. We didn't understand this until we spent a hot night in our room. The staff was upset to hear this, as they are on duty 24 hours and we should have called them for help! The issue was resolved easily, had we only known ! The hotel was very responsive and we learned something. They offered us a free breakfast (lovely) and I'd recommend including this in your room booking. The other hotel owned by this group is across the street and has a lovely courtyard/ cafe but no a/c.
