Besides its lack of prettiness, however, the location is suitable for accessing all of the prime sights, as well as the interior of the resort is well insulated from any sound in the road.
Style & personality
The Corinthia is a real beauty, its neo-classical façade opening on a lobby of marble plus a centrepiece staircase that sweeps up to a huge ballroom. The construction is split between 2 glass-covered atriums that suck mild, and the feeling of distance is continuing elsewhere throughout high ceilings and broad corridors.
