Room was not nice, carpet didn't meet together, mattresses are old with springs in your back. Bathroom has mould growing on shower walls, you can hear the toilet flush from upstairs and it sounds like it's raining in your room. I thought I had to grab an umbrella as it sounds like it's coming through the roof. The smell of... More

My husband and I are staying here not of our own choice, but because this expat care company chose it for us as we go through the process of finding permanent residency.

If you book this hotel because of free parking (as we did) or because of having nice romantic evenings - dont do it. 'Free' Parking ment to park our car on the street, where the locals are parking.

The hotel was booked through booking.com. We stayed from 8th April to 10th April 2016. Friendly people and courteous staff welcomed us nd our rooms were already ready. No need to wait.
