    At first glance, we were not sure this is a 4 stars hotel. But the room was specious, with fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, new & heated bathroom including a Jacuzzi. We actually felt like home. Only continental breakfast, served to your room. Very recommended

    We were running late on our road trip the day we were meant to check in and the staff stayed after hours so we could check in. Close to everything you might need. The room was wonderful, very clean and a great size.
