When you enter the hall you don't realize how horrible the room will be because they're totally different worlds! I stayed for 3 nights in the 5th floor, it was a package tour so I didn't choose it myself. The walls of the corridor are dirty, it's dark and smelly, also it's allowed to smoke anywhere which worses the situation.... More

Got there by accident. Someone who wasn't a motorcycle taxi posed and then didn't know any hotels down that street. He saw this one and the bell captain rushed out and grabbed my bags... The rest is history. The Business Center was a good touch and staff really helpful there. (Had to make an online booking, which failed and then... More

I stayed in this hotel for work because of its proximity to the convention centre (walking distance). The room was big, but not overly clean... It grossed me out a bit. Weird stains on the sheets, the "lake side" view is through scratchy glass and is of a gross drab looking lake. The breakfast was very ordinary for the most... More

Stayed here one week for business. Ok with the rooms but breakfast was a hit and miss. Some days great and some days just ok. Japanese restaurant was ok but little overpriced. They did give you a discount coupon when you checked in. Laundry service was excellent and fast. Close to a supermarket. Lot of smokers in lobby.

Large clean rooms, large bath, great service. Older furnishings and Art Deco style but maintained. In room wifi fades on occasion but fixed when you notify front desk. Quiet area with easy access to major attractions. In the Embasies area. Lacks nite life.

This is an large, older hotel, the room reflected this with stained carpet and old fashioned wall paper! Otherwise it was comfortable and clean and was close by to our friends house.
