I am giving this place 2 stars in spite of the fact that the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the wedding I attended was very smoothly run with a very good dinner/reception following the service ...
... however ....
… I am giving it two stars because I would never even think of staying the night here again. The rooms are located in concrete bunkers that seemed to have been designed by a graduate of the Soviet School of Public Accommodation. Each of the hallways is stark and depressing and all look exactly alike... you need a building specific map (available at the desk) otherwise you're in big trouble. At least one of the buildings is accessible through a subterranean labyrinth where the ubiquitous concrete has been painted a uniform institutional white (also the way to some guest facilities) ... be sure to avoid it if you have depression issues.
The rooms were clean, but rather dated and run down with an after-construction bathroom plopped into the middle of the room that created a very disjointed aspect. The whole room experience was rather unpleasant.
To reiterate, the staff made the best of what they have here, but the buildings are neither inviting, convenient nor comfortable. I won't be back.
