Renovation without thinking
Good Location, unfortunately it has been renovated to the worse: you can hear the room neighbors watching TV until very late at night and the only way the doors are closing is they slam automatically. Also the hotel website omits to mention the very close construction site

Exceptional10.0
It is a very nice hotel now that it has ben refurbished. The executive room we had on the 8th floor was wonderful and had extensive views of the local surroundings. The room service was exceptional, and breakfast service on Floor No 1 was excellent.The staff were very helpful and it is a well placed hotel for the surrounding attractions. We would go back and stay agin again!

Very Good8.0
Good for low budgets
The hotel looks and feels quite cheap, the price is a testament to it. If you are looking for low cost, definitely go here. But I stayed one night and left to get more comfort else where
