Reviewed 14 October 2015

Overall this was a convenient and nice place to stay. Just be careful when requesting a taxi. I requested a taxi for my early morning flight and they arranged for one of the more expensive private taxis (usually a Lexus) to take me to the airport. I asked if it was one of those and I was assured it wasn't.
