Short respite
Sue S

My spouse and I spent one night during the Independence Days celebrations, hoping for quiet, peace, and relaxation. Our room was spacious with a separate living area, and exceptionally effective soundproofing. The rain shower was fantastic! The breakfast buffet was amazing with more variety than any of the other hotels we have stayed at. The pool area was nice, albeit crowded with children since we stayed during a national holiday. Staff members were pleasant, polite, and professional. We will definitely be back!

Great place

I was in this hotel with my family for 3 days. Reasonable price, delicious breakfast where you can eat your fill. Unfortunately I didn't manage to jump from the pool. I can recommend the hotel to anyone

A good business hotel in the middle of the city

The hotel was fine; I particularly enjoyed the breakfast. There was a refrigerator in the room but not a microwave, which I needed. After much arguing -- and even involving my employer -- the hotel provided it. Be aware that the tap water at the hotel is not potable, as a sign above the sink warns. I bought bottled water water at a nearby supermarket.
