Stayed for one night at this hotel for layover accommodation. We were welcomed into the restaurant on arrival and treated like royalty. The food was really amazing with a wide variety. We were very well attended to. The room was very good and clean, no complaints.

I've been staying in the hotel for the last few months. Overall, I have found my experience really great. The manager has tried to make me feel very at home, as have the staff. I actually think the bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Would definitely recommend to my friends. Thank you.

Generally the Hotel was good. It has seen its very best days, but still nice and comfortable. Dinner buffet we had was good. On problem is the distance from the airport and even worse the whole process until you get to the hotel. Our stopover was 13 hours, at the end we were only 7 hours in the hotel. In... More

This is my second stay at the hotel. Its average not bad, although quite a bit outdated. Staff is very friendly, although housekeeping doesn't speak much English and difficult to explain specific requests. The worst was food. Its like a factory cafeteria. In addition to looking very worn out, I couldn't find anything healthy on the buffet. Everything I tasted... More

What I didnt like about it: rooms were not very clean, and appears very cheap construction. Wallpaper coming out, many carpets stains, and cheap curtains that dont completely close and mostly smell. Food isnt very good either. Its open buffet and they put very large quantities and that means it stays there very long hours, so if you come late... More

We stayed 4 nights and we had a very good experience. The Staff made sure to make our stay very agreeable. The food was good and we did enjoy the in-room food service which was excellent. A very good value for money. Thank you and I look forward to go back again.
