Pleasant ambience, easy walking distance to a variety of restaurants (there's also an in-house restaurant, The Golden Bean, which looks nice,...

Nice hotel with good rooms and services .A location which gives access to main roads easily but set enough back to avoid traffic noise. There is good restaurant in hotel but there are good places for Lunch and dinner around in case one wants to try some thing else. I enjoyed my stay.

The receptionist Ivannia was so helpful. We arrived on a very early flight and she managed to get us checked-in after we explored the area. The hotel is modern and very clean. There is a Fresh Market across the street and several good restaurants in walking distance. It is a ways from the airport and they do not provide shuttle.
