Stayed over a Saturday night. The music coming from the lobby, was so loud, despite being on the floor above, it sounded like they were in the hall. The hotel is a bit run down, but clean & acceptable.

Like another reviewer wrote we were on a tour and think this place should be taken off their list of hotels. The rooms are musty smelling and very dated. It is not near anything so you can't really go out and eat. Wi-fi was decent but that was about all.

We stayed here one night with a group tour. This was not like staying at a Best Western in the USA. No comparison. Very old and dated. Found the staff to have an attitude problem. And the food was just plain and bland. The only positive we could give it was the free wi-fi.

The decor is old, the rooms allow you to hear others through the wall, no irons in the rooms The breakfast was not good and the buffet was awful. I recommend you... More

Very good hotel to rest, nice place near the city, the staff are very nice and helpfully prompt to satisfied our request. The room has a nice view to the city, and very clean space, with free internet all over the place including the room and lobby. i love the place.

Arrived late due to long drive and got a " welcome " note that the hotel was overbooked. Hence we have been moved/ booked out to another hotel. Despite the fact that we have best western membership, have booked and paid 2 months in advance. Stay away and find a place that values their members.

I was with Cosmos tour company and we had a one night at this hotel. The room was dreadful-it was moldy and the cleaning staff had tried to cover it up with so much room freshener, it was difficult to breathe. It has a view but it is not near ANYTHING-so you are stuck at the location. I have never... More

The hotel has a nice garden with an awesome view of the city which is good because you cannot walk to anything near this hotel. The interior has not been updated. Some of the furniture was original which could be retro if they upgrade other areas of the hotel. Some of the furniture was worn. It did have a wierd... More
