    I like this hotel because they do care about guests: free internet, instruction how to use electronic clock, proper desk and chair, good light in bathroom which allows for proper shaving. All in all very excellent place

    Well presented and comfortable but pricing on high side. Beds very comfortable and bathroom came with reasonable quality shampoo, conditioner & moisturiser. Didn't eat breakfast but it looked like a standard hotel buffet. Laundry had pay per use commercial machines.
