When arriving at the hotel I was curious if I booked the right place. After entering the lobby and being greeted by the General Manager I felt much better about my choice.

I was expecting a better experience in this hotel. Lighting is dark, restaurant area is kind of dirty and rooms need to be renewed. Rooms are clean and beds are ok. Although it is not a expensive hotel, making some correction would improve value for money.

The swimming pool is quite large but has terrible hours - 11 a.m.-9 p.m. The staff is not knowledgeable about questions which they should easily be able to answer.... More

Rooms were alright. Staff was mostly friendly. I stayed about 10 days on business. Seemed to be "home base" for several working girls. Breakfast was simply coffee and muffins. Coffee was always empty.
