As a fan of Holiday Inns for one or two nights I am disappointed to complain about this hotel. The actual room and bathroom were spotless. Corridors were dirty and stained. Non smoking rooms were clearly former smoking rooms and therefore a deep clean is thoroughly recommended. Lifts are very small when you are with a large party and also... More

Stayed two days Check in: All the people doesn’t know English so need to spend some extra minutes during check-in and check-out Room: The rooms are small and compact but good enough for a couple of days stay Food: Very Less choices. Almost no choice for breads. Little difficult for outsiders Verdict: Suitable stay for couple of days.

I would definitely say the hotel is better than 3*. The rooms were good with a couple of English channels, comfy beds, free wifi and a large shower area. One problem with the rooms was that the light in our room was broken and wouldn't switch off. Nobody in reception spoke English and when I phoned them up I was... More
