This hotel is big and very busy. The pool is big and looks good, but again, very busy. Popular with local folk and seems very fancy. The service is rubbish. If you are there for a meeting, the tea and coffee snacks are woefully bad....More

Nice spacey rooms, great pool to swim, very centrally located, and an excellent kitchen that offers food for everyone. I spend 8 nights in the hotel and despite its many meetings, it was really quiet and very safe.

Some flaws are there but the people you meet always make you feel at home. Breakfast will make your day: food is good and everyone greets you with a smile. They welcome you as a guest and you will leave as a friend!

I have stayed there for more than 10 times the past year, reason being it’s at the center and closed to the work. Decoration in the room is kinda old; courtyard is too big, difficult to have waiter attention.
