Reviewed yesterday NEW

I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Construction still under going, should have been closed. Corridors with paint solvent smelling. Workers bringing construction material next to guests with potential hazard. Room barely reach 3 stars for the price. Construction workers still working until 6:30 with heavy drilling in the adjacent rooms.

The room was comfortable if a little hot. The bathroom was clean and the shower was nice and strong. If I had to return to the area I...

I was very disappointed about the customer service for several reasons and episodes happened in my one week stay. 1 - most of staff not smiling at all and often looked upset (it's not an issue for me btw) 2 - the...

The Hotel management has recently changed and there is a lot of services missing, like GYM and fridge in rooms. The room sizes are quite good. The area is not so good. It is very near to bus and train station.

The room was dirty. Towels were missing. The beds were sliding apart, and the matress was worn out. The staff at the front desk were polite, willing to help, and serviceminded. The breakfast was average at best.

The hotel two different buildings which makes it difficult to go to bar or breakfast if you are in the wrong building. The building outside has old rooms that needs renovation. All is old and scattered aroums in 2 buildings. Still quality in general is rather food.
