I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights (business trip). I wouldn't say this is a 5 stars hotel.
The location of the hotel is great. Rooms are big enough (try to get one on sea side). Room heater was not working. Furniture is old. Shower was not acceptable (curtain was not clean and could be screen). Besides this, there is no cleanness problem. Sleep quality is ok. Wi-fi is not free; USD10 per day and really slow. There is a business center with free of charge. A swimming pool on the terrace with a great view.; really enjoyable. Breakfast was satisfying exept cold coffees and teas. Staff was polite and helpful. Check-in & out took very short time. Lobby was cold. They don't use double doors or airblader so when the weather is cold you can't spend your time in the lobby. And you are freezing when you are having your breakfast. I doubt if I would stay there again.
