Good 6.0
Fairly good option for Thesen Island
Fairly nice hotel situated on Thesen Island...conveniently close to a few restaurants. Currently building outside the hotel....a lot of noise and dust going on. Some staff members were quite friendly, but do not deliver service. Waited over an hour for ice from room service - had to phone twice...
