I stayed total of almost 30 nights over two separate occasions. Hotel rooms were clean and basic. The best of all, the location is very good. It is very close from the airport. A lot of shops and restaurants. The supermarket down stair is a nice and convenient addition to the facility.

My room on the 7th floor was clean and well furnished with a separate lounge,... More
