I stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Location is very good, near city center and about 15 minutes to airport. The room is spacious, clean and well decorated and well equipped. Hotel staffs were helpful and friendly. The breakfast choice and taste was fine.

The room though a bit dated was comfortable. The bathroom though was not designed well - a bit cramped. The internet is free but unreliable... More

Let's start: 1) On arrival in the room, the safe deposit box was locked. This means that housekeeping didn't check the safe after the previous guest checked out 2) It took... More
