My tip is don't be fooled by the low prices of standard rooms! Pay a bit more for a deluxe room, the difference is huge!! The standard room is basically a bed 140/200 i presume taking up the whole room and a tiny tv attached to the wall. That's it. The bathroom was tiny and dirty. I paid extra for a deluxe room, which was ok.

I'm currently staying in the hotel, it seems nice when you walk in but don't be fooled. The staff are unenthusiastic, unhelpful and rude. We went up to our room and were disappointed by the size, space and the decor in comparison to the photos. I then went downstairs to try and change rooms to one with a double bed as I'm with my girlfriend and they had given us two single beds. The lady at reception then told me that all the rooms are that way which I know can't be true because of the photos online and because it would be suicide for a hotels business, (Maybe they just don't like the English). Later in the evening I went downstairs to get a beer from the bar, the lady at reception said she would get a waiter to come and serve me. I waited 30 minutes and no one came. Service is terrible, hotel very average and the area isn't very nice to say the least. I feel mislead and mistreated. For someone who works in the business its very poor to see and I can see why they have reduced star rating!

Stayed for two nights. Didn't spend much time in the hotel but the room was clean, service was ok. Frank I'm the lounge one night, not a very nice place. Waiter took some time and two days later, our table hadn't even been cleaned. So good to stay if you're out of the hotel most of the time. Just average.

I stayed here for 2 nights. The first night people in the next room to me woke up me at 5 in the morning. And the second night there was a party in the hotel restaurant till midnight. I told the receptionist and she told me that the manager knew about the problem, but there wasnt way to resolve it.

good location but improve your breakfast and hire some friendly staff. when we arrived our luxury room wasn't available and the desk man gave us an apartment that had an ok bedroom and another room that unfortunately was not clean and not well furnished ... on the last night we found that our bed wasn't made...
