Airport shuttles never arrived.
Everything about the hotel was wonderful except arranging airport shuttles. Twice they were ordered ahead of time and twice they never showed up and our entire group of 16 had to scramble for an alternative. We probably will not use this property again because of this issue and that there is an expense to use an airport shuttle if it does show up.

4/10 Fair

We hardly slept due to parties Rooms next door until 3 in the morning! Nobody from the staff dared to stop the noses, because, according to the front desk it was… « friday »!! What is the point?

Bad Hotel
Terrible. I did not enjoy my stay due to this hotels treatment. My friend later left for another hotel close by and saw the big difference.

Always a pity about your neighbours
Firstly, the staff: awesome! Friendly, professional, welcoming. The room I stayed in was small but comfortable; then again, the rate I paid was reflected in this. BUT: the room next door had a balcony and those occupants would stand there and smoke, discoursing loudly. The smoke would waft into my room while their voices were intrusive. Also, the restaurant does not have surfaces that absorb sound and any laughter or so is, to say the least, LOUD! But, the food is good, the location brilliant, the parking secure.
