One Caveat
This is a nice hotel with very comfortable and modern rooms. I did decide to change hotels due to one big problem. The beautiful pool in the center is uncomfortably cold! This is a deal breaker to me.

Budget Friendly Good Centrally Located Hotel
Always a great place to stay if you’re on a tight budget. Rooms are very clean, A/C very cold, great restaurant, hotel is centrally located to everything. Staff are very friendly and helpful. A little noisy in the room from the street traffic, just make sure you bring ear plugs or have a few drinks before bedtime! Lol😜 I have personally stayed at this hotel over 10 times and it hasn’t changed! Overall a nice place to stay! I
