Great Value. Great location next to the airport. The room was clean. We slept very well. Breakfast buffet was good. Check in was fast. The restaurants in the hotel are a little too expensive though. Overall a great hotel if you have a flight the next day.

Clean and comfortable,professional, friendly and helpful staff. Look and feel of 4-star hotel at a very economical price. Close enough to the city hence the bar is flocked by locals and then it's a happening place! Live music and dancing = fun !!!
