Gershon from Israel
Business traveler
King Room
Stayed 1 night in April 2017
Bare minimum hotel”
This hotel was disappointing. Only one elevator was working and the employees I asked said the other one wasn't going to be repaired any time soon - because the cost was too high. So there was a 5+ minute wait every time. The room was VERY basic - no mini-bar, no fridge, no TV channel guide or any hotel info, no charging sockets by the desk, even the clock wasn't plugged in or set! It had a clean bed, a coffee maker and sufficient space - though you wouldn't want to remain there. I re-checked for a 2nd night at 8.30am, confirmed with the desk staff then left for the day. I returned at 7.30 pm to find they had not made up my room - so no clean towels, no coffee - I could live with an unmade bed. I informed the desk by phone but they told me they had no cleaning staff at that hour! When I eventually went down there (5 minutes waiting for the elevator), they did give me another room - so I took the coffee and towels from there! Why they couldn't have done that is beyond me. The hotel has beds, plenty of parking and is in easy reach of the city center by car. If that's all you need this will suffice. Otherwise avoid.

easy access”
good price for budget travelers, close enough to city center and public transport.
In overall is good, only the cleaning service a bit too early asking for cleaning up the room, with consequences we don't get any a new trash bag, coffee package and messy room as they passed our room for the day. Other than that we are very pleased with the service.

Great value hotel to stay. Convenient located”
Like the location. Situated between airport and city and hotel provide shuttle to airport which is less than 15 mins away. Very convenient for us as we are driving. Easy to get into the city.
Great! We are extremely appreciative of the big room and the convenient location of the hotel.

OK if you only want a place to sleep...”
price price price
Room was large but looked like abandoned in the middle of renovation. Wall got fresh paint, but dust everywhere. I mean everywhere. We got one-bed room, but the bed was small. AC noisy. Breakfast was a joke. Bread was one week past expiration date, and I had the worst muffin I ever had. Only coffee was ok. Breakfast staff was rude too. WiFi did not work in room, only in lobby area. Interestingly, there was ONLY hot water in room, no cold water available. When you sit on toilet, water is warm so your butt will sweat. :) There was a small chinese place in front of hotel, and we had nice takeaway food. Price was really good, so if all you need is a bed to sleep and you are on budget, this place might work for you.

Inexpensive for a reason”
Steve at reception, a great help
Inexpensive choice for a night or 2. Rooms are a good size but entire hotel needs updating. Free parking and wifi are great extras. Pool was closed, not sure is noted on hotel description. I did not eat or drink and the restaaurant so I can not comment

You may not be sleeping alone”
It had warm water.
I will never stay at this hotel.In our opinion the hotel needs to be demolished. No cold water in the sink, Bathtub made noises to the point we stood on the sides of the tub when we took our shower. Shower curtain had approx. 4 inches of mold all along the bottom. The swimming pool looked as if it had not been opened or cleaned for a year. Electric outlets had cracked or no faceplates and/or didn't work. only two Ice machines working(on the 5th and the 7th floor) we were on the 15th floor and wasn't told. A MOUSE was seen coming out from under the bed!! .
