This hotel is close to the airport, and the staff is nice. The rooms are not clean enough, the WiFi is BAD, and the power goes out sometimes. The food is also not so good. Great coffee though. The shower is good, and the hotel seems secure.

It's not a 5 star hotel, however the welcome is much better because it's... More
