Recent guest reviews

Friendly. Staff.Good breakfast and coffee available all the time.

Very nice room. Helpful staff. The view was very nice. Area of hotel was good for transportation.

Staff very helpful. Good location, mall with restaurants about a 5 minute walk. Bus stop into city center outside entrance.

The staff were warm and friendly and a great source of information. They helped make sure you knew where to go, how to get there and shared the secrets of day trips. Rooms are small but that is the norm in this part of the world but they were clean. The room did need some storage space since there is no drawers. Overall our experience was great.
