It was the 3rd or 4th time that I was spending some time in this hotel and it is very pleasant to be here every time again. It is, always, a pleasure to stay here. The rooms are nice, well equipped and well maintained and the service is extremely pleasant.

Not the cheapest option, but sure a safe, comfortable hotel. Not all the staff spoke English well but they sure try their best and were very helpful. Food was good as well. Would definitely stay there again.
