Wonderful team, excellent service! Well done! I have really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Strongly recommend for both business and leisure travellers. I am a frequent traveller all over the world and I must say that the service provided here is not worse that in any 5 star and luxury hotel.

Rooms are nice and very clean, everything you need is here. Only problem was the street sweepers come early in morning and wake you up. But Really enjoyed staying here and loved my first time...
