    nice location

    bed service, When we leave, don't help us call to book to the airport car, but other hotel have helped us. The room is noisy, because people are playing and drinking every evening.

    Very poor noise insulation, no air conditioning and on top of that, no noise limitation after 11pm... We were forced to listen to the music a group of cards player had turned on for 2 hours, while someone played guitar right beneath our window... Very unsatisfied

    Fabulous

    The price and the location are excellent. All the bathroom were very clean and also the kitchen. I would stay there again.

    When we arrive the staff was very busy and they weren't so friendly.
