I was so happy to see the hotel after 24 hours of flying, but that's not the basis for my review. Wonderful friendly staff helpful with every request I made. Since you are already inside through security and everything, you literally walk out from the hotel straight to your gate. I thought I would have more trouble finding it but... More

Very convenient and easy for anybody with an extended international layover. Accomodations are clean and simple. Comfortable bed, hot shower, 500mb of free WiFi. While staying in the hotel you have free access to the international terminal including all its restaurants and duty free shops. They also have a separate customs/security checkpoint line to get you through quickly. Be sure... More

Hotel is very nice, clean, convenient. Easy access from arrivals and super easy access to departures. It was quiet and the hotel was prepared for my arrival. There were no electrical converters available due to them all being loaned out. They did offer to charge my phone in their office.

Hotel has monopoly I transit area at the airport. Making profit seems more important than customers. Checking in takes almost an hour, two ladies doing the best they can, but the que is too long and the system seems to be slow. And picking up the phone has priority. And then asking three times for towels is needed to get... More

Friendly staff, comfy beds, pretty rooms, good food, a lil pool to cool down on hot summer days... It doesn't offer special luxuries like some people mention (shops, etc) but it has everything you need, it's clean and looks v.decent! Recommended.

This hotel is the average overnight hotel. If you want a quick in and out with zero luxury, this is for you. Nothing special, terrible tv, and poor room layout. But truly, it's a fine hotel if you're not looking for anything special, it is clean and sterile, which is important.

This hotel is perfect for transit passengers. After the flight you go to the transfers, pass through customs and baggage check and then you enter the hotel. When you leave you just go to your gate!
