I stayed at this hotel for three nights on a recent work trip and was travelling with two other female colleagues.
The hotel and rooms were fine, pretty much what you'd expect for price and the rooms looked recently updated with new bathrooms. All making for good start to stay.
However, whilst not the hotels fault it did seem to be very popular with large tour groups arriving by bus, this meant reception was very manic and the restaurant out of bounds to anyone not in a group. We arrived at around 8pm on the first night so really wanted dinner but due to restaurant and the location it was hard to find anywhere good to go that was close by, we ended up at the small hotel bar having snacks (which although quite nice was not ideal).
Another point, again not directly relating to hotel is the street just outside the hotel which is a legalised area for sex workers. Whilst I am not a prude you don't really want to walk along a road filled with girls in thongs dancing to attract a client (and hot foot it to the local car park). In a group you can laugh this off but if I had been on my own or with family members I may have felt more uncomfortable, and in summer with open windows I wonder what noise level would be?
Overall a good stay and fine hotel but some considerations for booking, think I'd prefer to be in another of chains hotels in a better location, with choice.
