The highlights were: the wonderful breakfast buffet each morning in the quirky, comfortable lobby; enjoying a... More

The rooms are ultra clean and modern and beds are comfortable. Air conditioning, heating and Wifi work well. Bathroom was small but adequate, very light and bright with good mirrors, an... More
