This hotel was exactly what my family and I needed. Not too expensive, very central, comfortable and clean, but the biggest hit was the rooftop pool! I will look to stay there again.

Requested a high floor room, got one at the bottom. Very dated hotel. Bed was extremely comfortable and room was very large and pleasant. For the room I’d give 8/10 - for everything else a 5/10.

Very tired but clean property. Tiny bathroom, the door hits the toilet placed at an angle. Comfortable beds but pillows could have been firmer and hard to sleep with noisy AC.
