Reviewed 6 October 2014

Very good hotel, and location the is ideal not far from the airport. However, the the mall attached to the hotel restaurants, and man made cannel is no longer in service which made the hotel lose some of the reputation. In addition room cleanliness is not up to standard dust all over the tables.
