First things first, the hotel just opened so taxi drivers have no idea where it is. After an hour long ride from the airport, we finally lucked into finding the place by just driving around the "gate area" of the city. So if you are staying here, get a map printed before getting on a plane.
The hotel is a budget, no frills sort of establishment that is just what I needed. Check in was very fast and the room was comfortable with a very good bed and great pillows. The room was small, but not too much so. Great breakfast buffet (it is on the 2nd floor).
According to the front desk, they share a gym and pool with a the attached hotel, but I didn't have time to see it.
So if you are going to be in town for a day or two and need a quick, cheap, nice place to stay, then this is the place for you.
