Old style Hotel, Friendly staff, very spacious, Toilet System not user friendly. Lifts are very slow and not enough for the guests, had to wait for very long; During our stay once one lift went out of action and could see the frustration on desperate guests during check out time.

Hi, not sure about the price as we did not had breakfast on a single morning at the hotel and used many options close to the hotel. We did however ordered room service one night for the dinner. The dinner was delicious and not very costly either.
