“Nice view, and that's about it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

What kind of hotel closes the reception at 18:00? I came about 10 minutes late, even though I advised I would be, and the grumpy man graciously let me in.

Once inside, it's nothing special- no frills- probably ok for the price.
