Situated in a side street near to a park, it does not at first glace, seem like the perfect place to stay. However, walk through the door and opinions soon change.

The room was fairly big, although there was a faint smell of urine in the bathroom. One bed smelled of perfume and the other smelled of tiger balm. Otherwise, the carpets were clean. If you forgot your toothbrush, they do supply free of charge. Location was not bad. It is still a 20-30 min walk to the main street. It... More

I stayed in this hotel for 4 days/nights. The room was very comfortable, the bed first class. All modern things you expect from a hotel were there: airco, minibar, safe, etc. Breakfast was nice too, lots of choice. I cannot find any major flaws, so thumbs up.

Unfortunately the hotel is well away from the main sites and to find a restaurant in the evenings required a good walk. The hotel had a luxurious feel with nice bedrooms and good facilities.

My husband and I just spent 6 nights and were impressed with the clean and tidy room and with the helpful staff. My only complaint is that our 5th floor room was filled with cooking odors both early evening and early morning and that was really unpleasant.
