“POOOR!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012

Luckily i only stayed in this hotel for one night!
it really looked nice from the outside..the lobby and all looked good!
but going upstairs! ...the room smelled like i dont know! not right!
it smelled bad...i asked to switch rooms...what was not a problem! and in that room the bathroom would not open! than they tried fixing the door...took too long so went in the city and when i came back it was fixed...just like the room before this one also smelled...less but still bad!
the bathrooms had mold so did the ceiling of the rooms!
again poor rooms..glad it was just one night!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2012

We stayed there for one night. Hotel is situated in a good place: 15 minutes from city center with an array of shops, restaurants and ATMs around. At that time there was a discound for room if you pay by card.
Room was quite small. There was an AC in it. AC was in inconvenient place and one bed was always under the cool flow. The shower was ok. With hot water, really hot. Oriental breakfast was included. So I think it is a good stop for a couple of nights.
