We took the hotel shuttle bus which was waiting right outside the ground transportation exit of the airport. Quick and easy process. With that being said, it seemed like you could probably...

We got the room on level one and thus it was a bit noisy as we could hear the people at the lobby. Breakfast was comforting and was pleasantly surprise to...

The hotel was overall appropriate and had all what was needed. However the WiFi was somewhat slow and the daily MB limits too low. The fitness center was Ok but tend to be too warm when running/spinning more than half an hour.

Staff were ok but some were rude; waiter, took too long with Bill. Need to up their game there. Sleep was really miserable as there was an ancient aircon probably from the 1970s !!!!
