I spent the night in this Inn and it is really clean with lovely comfortable beds. The staff are helpful and it is a stones throw from the shopping centres. The breakfast is plentiful and hot. The only draw back is there is not a lot of parking. They charge for a room which includes a double sofa bed as... More

So We are Americans and saw this hotel online. The price was good, close to a metro station, had free breakfast. We feel very comfortable with rail systems so we weren't concerned that it was outside of the city. Here are some things I didn't know. 1.) It is a 1/2 mile walk to the metro which adds up when...

This is a standard multiple hotel and on that level it functions ok. The room layout decor etc is as you would expect and will have perhaps experienced in similar hotels under this brand.
