Nice hotel. Good location. 4 out of 5 stars
The hotel staff is very nice and professional. Hotel is clean however the elevador, hallway and walls need maintenance. The rooms are nice however the walk to the room from elevador through the hallways needs improvement. I was happy with the breakfast and restaurant dining experience. Good food at a fair price.
