Had a great time during my stay in Ares Hotel. Good and central point in the city to see all the tourist attractions. From the rooftop terrace you have a great view over the city. Everytime I came here I enjoyed it very much. Great staff and decent rooms. All cozy atmosphere.. I would recommend this place!

交通快捷方便,附近有不同餐廳,商場。而且員工服務態度非常友善,細心。洒店的食物多元化,且十分美味。我一定會再次光臨! Travel from airport to Areshotel is just 40 minutes. There are people to pick us up from the airport, very convenient and well organised. also it is surrounded by a lot of traditional shops and restaurants. The stuffs are very friendly,patient and make us feel very welcome. I would definitely come again !
