Staff were very friendly. Walking distance to the airport was very useful. Currently undergoing renovations but I’m sure it’ll look great when they’re finished. Room didn’t have a fridge or a sink, which was a bit annoying.

6/10 Good

The property was a little old and tired. The air conditioner in our room dripped water profusely and we woke up to a suitcase lying in a large puddle of water on top of a dresser. There is a lot of construction going on around the hotel. The good thing is that there is another hotel across the street that has an excellent breakfast in a nice surrounding.
