Very good service and helpful staff. Must pay ekstra for wifi. Good breakfast. Little noise from the street at night. Large room and clean bathroom. Very good for a 2 star hotel. The bus to the airport stops outside the door, but taxi is cheaper than bus. Recommended.

Imagine a hotel complex on a little empty island. Nothing to look for outside the complex. The hotel itself being a lush green oasis.
