The room was nice, neat and well stocked with every essential needed. The staff were pleasant and I got an upgrade on arrival. The room came with free breakfast. Checkout was a bit cumbersome so I advise you checkout ahead of your departure time. I enjoyed my stay there.

I so much like this hotel...staff are friendly, room is very clean and foods at the buffet really taste good. Nice hotel but i just wish they have free wi-fi like other hotels that i have been. The place is quiet too.

The staff that clean the room don't even change the cups in the room. When I asked them to change, he just went to the bathroom and washed it with... More

Nice large rooms with a good toilet, cannot open the curtains as another apartment window is in front. so no view. 4021 room has a noise of water running in another room, woke me up in the night. The staff is very helpful. Lots of eating places closeby.

As other reviews have stated, if you just want a place to crash, this hotel is fine. The breakfast was adequate, although their idea of English oatmeal is something to be seen (not eaten). The staff was helpful.

We booked this hotel through "Booking.Com" website on the Friday before staying a few days later. It looked nice from the pictures and had a roof top pool. We ideally was looking for Half Board, not knowing the area or anything but in the end the only price was for bed and breakfast. We were initially booked in a double... More
