Comfortable and in good location.
Very satisfied with this hotel. Comfortable 4 star hotel. Very attentive staff. Good breakfast buffet. Good value for the money. Within walking distance of city center, but there are some cafes and restaurants around. Quiet at night.
Jorge, us3 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Horribly average
Our first room smelled of cigarette smoke and unwashed conditions. It was on the first floor. I called immediately and they moved us to a second room The second room was on the 4th floor. It did not smell. The rooms are very small and have limited space around the bed. Even on the 4th floor there is plenty of road noise. The shower is a corner stall and the soap dispensers are the kind you would find in a public toilet - they are on the wall and you push them. This is a solid 2 star hotel. The classification here is completely misleading. The breakfast was standard fare for a 2 class hotel.

Nice hotel
Nice hotel.. 10mins walk to the old city... hotel was kind enough to arrange an early breakfast for us.
AKASH, in2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Overall a good experience.
It was a very nice hotel. The room was quite small but, comfortable bed. The bathroom was very small and difficult for two people getting ready at the same time. The staff was great. The pool was freezing cold and the poolside drinks and snacks were expensive. Great breakfast.
