The rooms aren't bad, however they need to improve the level of cleanliness at the hotel, since the floor wasn't swept and the bed sheets weren't changed (4 nights stay) In addition, the breakfast isn't rich and contains limit amount of choices.

The room in itself is not bad, but the bathroom needs to be gutted and redone: it's filthy. The front desk people are very unhelpful, especially one called "cherry" who doesn't smile and is rude. I was asked to change rooms after my first night and had to go to a different building, which was very inconvenient. Customer service is... More

They are ideal for families as they centrally located and the facilities were good for a family with small children. The apartments are clean and have all the basic facilities you would... More

The accommodation was clean and comfortable, and the restaurant provided good food, even when we arrived at the hotel at 1.00 am., but the staff on the reception desk made us feel like any request was too much effort and that they could not wait to hustle us out of the door.
