Susanna, Thank you for sharing your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your stay did not meet with your expectations. We pride ourselves on offering clean and comfortable rooms. Since we are a non-smoking hotel, the smoke smell was likely from outside of the hotel....More

Pros: Better than what I expected, the suite is large enough to comfortably accommodate three people and I'm pretty sure it can accommodate more. Although the hotel itself a bit aged, everything is clean and facilities are well preserved. The hotel is close to nearly...More
