  • 6.0.Good

    My stay was good but room service is bad I had to call twice because they always seem to forget to bring up what ever I order to my room like water ice or pillow etc... on the other hand I would like to thank Ekrem the doorman for 5 star service.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Bad experience with this hotel

    Wasn’t very happy with my stay. I requested a none smoking room because of my allergy, they gave me a smoking room and it was very stincky. There was a drilling noise in the morning. The school sets very loud music in the morning. The toilets are making a very bad smell. The hotel is located in an industrial area, so the view and the hotel surrounding is quite bad. They really need to invest some money to improve the rooms. Overall I will never visit this hotel again.

    Room service was a little slow and had to ask multiple times for certain condiments when ordering room service. Food was average. But the hotel room was very good, clean and nice and the front desk was very helpful and friendly.
