Good safe place for travelers.

I stayed at this hotel while traveling alone. I felt safe and took the opportunity to make stroll the courtyard during the evening hours. It is well lit during the night--I checked out at 4:15 am and had no problem getting from my building(4) to the lobby across the courtyard.

Positive family visit experience

I stayed at the Hotel because it was close to where my son is living temporarily. it was convenient to vist him by the little train, and by taxi. It is also close to the Airport which is a big asset. the hotel is lovely in the lobby, and the gardens are spectacular. Although I could use the heated hot tub, the swimming poll was too cold for swimming. I had a relaxing and enjoyable time at the Hotel, and would return for the same purpose.

beautiful and huge

first time stay here, chosen for the good price and proximity to the airport. beautiful hotel, but so large it was very difficult to navigate around in, i got lost a couple times even when i thought i was following the signs. room very comfortable, clean, nice coffee maker (a must for me). stayed just one night then off to the airport. would definitely recommend this hotel.
