We stayed with my husband in this hotel more than 10 times since 2009. We like it very much: the location, the welcome staff and... More

Anyway, it would only be for a few hours maximum as we had to leave very early again. We had a very late (included) dinner and the... More

I wanted a place to stay for a night while on transit and Panari was the closest to the airport and had good reviews. However, while the hotel itself is ok, its the experience which makes me look elsewhere next time. I was told during check in that breakfast is free, but while having breakfast some one came up to...

Very slow service at the reception. Paid with credit card and they charged me twice. Surprised with low quality bathroom. Bad service at the Gold Caffe bar. All in all, bad quality and service for the 240 USD you have to pay per night.
