It is one of the best 3star hotels i have visited. Close to the airport but with adequate sound proof windows, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice wc and a decent basic swimming pool. The price is definitelly very good for the service offered.

Hi no free shuttle service from this hotel but it’s so easy to go down the road and get the airport bus it’s very cheap or you can walk from the hotel. Will take you about 20 minutes.
