          • 1.8

            Friendly staff, wi-fi,good position, spacious room.

            Breakfast too much sweets, first day without fresh fruits.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            The location. The breakfast was reasonable and the coffee was good.

            I'm not sure if it happened just to the room my siblings and I stayed in but the air conditioning was faulty and did not get cold at all. The room was stuffy and the staff insisted that the air conditioning was set to the maximum level. After persuading them to get the facilities manager to come view it the next morning, no one came. We eventually gave up as we only stayed there for 3 nights in the summer of 2011.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            The price was reasonable. The toilet was decent and spacious. Breakfast though limited was included in the price. The hotel staff's command of English is fair, sufficient to get by during our stay.

            I'm not sure if all rooms face this problem but my room had air- conditioning that didn't work and the management insisted that it was set to the maximum. We told them several times to come and fix it but they never did. The room was uncomfortably stuffy in the summer. Also the hotel doesn't provide a kettle for boiling water. You can ask for hot water but you'd have to call reception to request for it.

          • Couple

            Nearby some good restaurants and shops

            No free parking, next to the main noisy road, Wi-Fi low signal in some part of the room, not willing to receive credit card

          • Single
            9.6

            The staff, friendly and efficent, the room was great, and the location.

            There was no diet sodas in the frigobar nor in the restaurant.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            It is a really nice hotel, location is perfect.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Staff was very nice and helpful. Hotel is very close to location I was working at.

            Restaurant is very small and food not very good. Breakfast did not have much choice of food.

          • Single
            6.2

            Clean rooms, OK location.

            The hotel was supposed to be 4 star, but it really isn't. There's no 24 hour front desk, and the staff can't really speak English. All in all it felt like a cheap bording house and not a 4 star hotel.

          • Group of friends
            6.8

            The closeness to the city center.

            Not much clset or drawer space in the rooms.
