Hotel Shuttle from airport and back was GREAT! Friendly drivers (we met 3 different ones). There is a schedule to follow which is great for planning.
We took the shuttle back to airport just to buy dinner and groceries. The things at the airport are surprisingly real affordable!
Booking your shuttle on departure day is mandatory, so don't forget to do so with reception.
Reception staff is prompt and clear with information.
Room is clean and great bathroom too.
We enjoyed the breakfast spread . Only complaint is our bad experience with a breakfast staff lady on the day of our departure.
We had an early morning flight and had asked for some takeaway bags to pack a decent breakfast for us and our baby. The lady gave us paper bags. So we could only take dry food like bread and spreads.
Having 15 minutes before the shuttle came, we wanted to eat some hot eggs before leaving and took some on a plate. The lady very rudely confronted us and told us we could either pack to go or eat here. Doing both was not possible.
Fine. So do I put the hot scrambled eggs in the thin paper bag you grudgingly passed to us?
Do you really think we are cheapskate?
We simply wanted to enjoy some hot eggs and had no plans to clean out the breakfast spread.
In any case, even if it is company policy, the tone and mannerism of a hotel staff who daily deals with international guests should have a level of professionalism. One person can ruin the best of stays in a pretty great hotel.
