We reserved this hotel with a travel site, and we are very happy. This hotel is quiet and all the personal are really cool. The prices are corrects, the parkind is a little bit small, but it's not really a problem because the hotel is not very near the city !! A good time , we will come again !!

Problem for us was that the wifi does not get to inside the rooms (although... More

This is a poor place to stay for the star ratings and the price. The service is extremely poor. Few examples, no wifi in room, no option to get a printout of any ticket.

On arrival at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised. A little saddened to see there was no footpath from the hotel to the town however! The receptionist was friendly and we checked in quickly.

So when we checked into the hotel, we were directed to the elevators, which were not working. So we carried our own bags up the stairs and found our room.
