We only stayed here one night, but I would come back if I had too. The host/front desk was very friendly. He carried my girlfriends bag upstairs and let us know all that was going on (when breakfast was, etc.).
The room was small, but clean and looked great. The bed wasnt too firm nor soft, somewhere in the middle. The bathroom had a small pedestal stink with a large shower. There was a safe in the room (actually it was just a nightstand cupboard that locks. I would assume a hammer could pry it open). Outside our room was a nice little relaxing area with some sofas and chairs. Seemed like a cool place to have a cup of coffee and read.
The hotel has a restaurant on site. We went for some drinks and dinner. A little expensive for what you get, not too bad though. The food was good, nothing great, but we were tired from our flight and didnt want to venture out, and this hit the spot.
In the morning we had to leave before breakfast was ready (7am). So at 6:30am we went down and asked the waiter/service person if we could just grab a cup of coffee. He didnt have a problem with that and let us in to get a cup before we had to leave. Thought that was awesome. I need my coffee!
Nice one night experience. Nothing bad to write about. Cool little place if your not looking for anything too fancy.
Tip: The outside doesnt look like its all that when you pull up, but it gets A LOT better once your inside. I was a little scared when the driver stopped and said, here's your hotel. I was like "Seriously? Here?" But no worries, all is good once you are inside.
