    Overall nice

    The staff was very friendly and helpful, our stay was very nice. The only negative comment would be regarding the mop trolleys waking us up each morning. As the corridor floors are covered with tiles, the cleaning ladies were making some noise when wheeling the mop buckets. The place was kept very clean though.

    The fitness facilities are good. Staff at the reception is helpful and knowledgeable. Service at the restaurant is ok on average: not 5 star service, but would be decent for a 3 star hotel (so not bad either). All rooms seem to have a decent view, so there’s no risk in booking any type of a room.
