The Manhattan Bar had a nice atmosphere and was a good place to relax in the evening. The hotel was clean and tidy and staff were accommodating. Rooms are equipped with the basics but on the small side. Breakfast was adequate and the location is within walking distance of many local restaurants and coffee bars. The shuttle service to KINTEX... More
