The hotel is brand new. The location is not near the city centre, but 15 mins drive away. It is also 10-15 mins away from the airport. Since there is not much to do in the city we enjoyed our stay and rented a small car to move around the area. The room was very big and new. Bathroom too. Breakfast included some noodles, rice, toasts. We had to ask for some fruits. It was OK, but nothing special. In the reception area it was very cold. The A/C was working at 16 degrees and I did not feel good staying there. The staff was very polite, but not very good in english and the comunication was a bit difficult. I asked for a compact rent a car from the reception. They contacted a company, that brought me a car in the worst condition I have ever seen - durty, scratched. I felt it was a joke. i think the hotel must choose carefully the companies it works with. That was not professional. I had to take a taxi and go to the APT to rent the same class car from another company and cheaper.
