Fair 4.0
Tired and Smelly.
Close to airport. Hotel is looking tired however and the rooms need a refurbish. The smell of the room was horrendous. However, as we only used the hotel for a few hours before a flight we were too tired to complain.
Dobromila, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
Needs more reliable airport shuttle service
Hotel was decent. Clean and large rooms. However, if you market yourself as an airport hotel with free shuttle, you have to make sure you are on time. I mentioned our time for a shuttle to the airport beforehand multiple times, and still had to wait 30 minutes in the lobby constantly reminding them before a car was ready.
