          Very nice🤗👍 Value for money”

          My 2nd booking, 2 weekends in a row 🤗 (As per previous review) Nice entrance, ample of parking space around. Have nice restaurants below and in front of hotel and place to have morning breakfast beside hotel (non-halal) Btw, hotel does not provide breakfast. Check in and out is fast. Entrance and check in counter small but beautiful hallway. Room, clean. Bed comfortable. Shower, very nice strong pressure, heater working. Toilet seat so huge comfortable, with bidet. Air conditioner York brand, turbo super cold, although takes time to cool the room initially, because the centralized air conditioner is not being used and only 1 room key card given. Environmental friendly, so you dont leave the aircon on while you are out. Basic amneties given, shampoos, two big towel, mineral water, tea/coffee but, (no toothbrush/toothpaste) Overall, considering the price and location, very good deal. Clean, beautiful and just nice, for couple travellers 🤗 privacy. Although if you are in the lower floor (5floor in total) it might be noisy at night till midnight, music from singing in the bar below the hotel 🤗 something to consider, just saying Tq 🐻🤗
