The hotel features a business centre, 8 meeting rooms, an on-site car rental counter, an outdoor pool and a restaurant, which is open daily for breakfast and dinner every day.

The Bad
While reviews of this hotel were largely positive among those used for this analysis, there were some criticisms, mostly directed towards the hotel's appearance.

There were a few comments about dated interiors, stuffy rooms that needed airing out and a generally unattractive setting with cheap looking renovations. A few others found the bathrooms to be too small. The impression given by a few guests was that it was not worth the price being charged and better options were around.


Location was not inspiring either with unappealing views, nothing interesting in the nearby neighbourhood to see and do.

Several guests complained about the free made-to-order breakfast saying mostly that the service was way too slow even for basic orders. Others found the food "not good" and portions small.
