The hotel is not what it appears on the Internet description. Service from the management was unwelcoming, bordering on rude. Food was average at best and overpriced. Breakfast didn't even include fresh fruit or coffee. The hot water wasn't reliable. We got the impression that the hotel just wasn't ready for business, despite this visit being mid June.
And it wasn't cheap either!
