It's quite old hotel but It's worth with what I paid for. A piece of advice. do find any discount rate in any website. Try to book 2 months upfront to get affordable value. I am very satisfied with the service especially the reception, doorman and the housekeeping. I went with family during my convocation day last 12/2015.

A 4 star hotel with great facilities. Near to city center. The food was great and all round the clock order available. Try discount partner websites for great pricing offer. Certainly value for money.

Hotel staff were very smiling and accomodating, and airport pickup was cheap and efficient. Room very spacious. But how this hotel can have a 3,5 star rating on hotels.com is incomprehensible. The carpet in the room is dingy and very strange to walk on. The light behind the bed would not stop flickering. The sheets appeared moist when I went... More

I stayed in this hotel a week ago and it was a good experience. The staff were polite and very helpful, the room was clean and location was excellent! Would stay there again. It was very near many tourist sites and one could do the town's main tourist spots and get a good breakfast / lunch while staying here.
