The lobby looks good and modern, but the room is kind of old already and needs urgent refurbishing. The shower is really great, but the bed and pillows are just so, so! Overall, just an average hotel!

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
window view from bath to the room (super cool) & good breakfest served in the room (fair price as well); the cordiality from the 3pp parking lot person wasn´t good (maybe bcause only one person for whole hotel), not available mtc person 24x7 (my room had the lights turned off and just got help in the next morning).
