Good location, comfortable room. It’s a big place though and hard when you have to walk so far to and from elevators and to the main building for facilities. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Pity it didn’t have a free breakfast, we were used to that throughout our trip. Overall a nice place to stay there, would recommend it.
