Been to this place many times. It's one of the best location for me. Next to grocery store, shops and trolley stop. Has a nice balcony to watch things going on and nice view of mountains. Only thing missing was a toilet paper holder in the bathroom this time..

I scored this hotel as a 3 only because it needs to be updated with paint, carpet, etc. We were very please with the room we got. The room itself was very clean. It did smell like a smoking room, but it could have been from the vacuum cleaner. We sprayed it with Lysol and that helped. It had a...

The staff was very friendly and helpful . We stayed in the penthouse and it was super clean and huge. I also loved the location. And the indoor pool was nice. And the jacuzzi in the room was a huge plus after walking all day.
