location and hotel is good but need to improve a lot on the quality of service. Guess, hotel needs to invest on the training of the staff. Bathtub is too small to fit in an average size person. Someone should take the pain to inform the guests about the facilities in the hotel.

The final rate of Very Good is actually deserved for the overall atmosphere and service. In se , probably , an Average should be more consistent with point to point analysis. But I insist with my Very Good

Excellent every time I come the friendliness of the staff and the peace and quite that you get in an otherwise noise city. It has the best bar and the best bartender that you can get anywhere at any hotel.
