I booked this hotel for a one night stay. Upon arrival, I was told that I was eligible for an upgrade for no extra cost. The front desk worker was super friendly and helpful. My room was in the other building and was very nice. The water pressure was a little low, though I think this was due to the... More

A typical 4 stars hotel! I checked in for couple of days where I hardly stayed at the hotel, although the quality of the room is acceptable and I believe meets the standards, I have my doubts about the bathrooms. it's clean I have to say, but it doesn't match the rooms atmosphere. I would expect that this is a... More

The hotel is of average quality, considering also the location. Clean but quite rough quality in everything, room's furnitures are quite old. The personnel is nice but, similarly to other situtions in those countries, the service is unpredictable and very, very slow. The breakfast is quite good. In short: good location for business trips at afforable price, but there are... More

Stayed for 2 weeks during business trip. Very nice impression. I would say this is the one of the most friendly hotels which I ever visited.

This hotel starts to be old. It needs seriously to be looked after. From the lobby it doesn't sound bad but the rooms are aged. Even their junior suite where you would expect some sort of luxury are almost dirty. Warm water is barely luck warm and bathtub is dirty. Wifi is erratic so forget about working.

The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel is near the shops area and shopping streets, the hotel breakfast has a lot of variety and they have a 24 hr room service, and the hotel is quite so you can really relax after a long day.
