    I will give high rating on location as it's just outside the main train station. Hotel is neat and clean but given the poor quality of breakfast and lack of gym, there could be better options to look for.

    Gaia is a nice nice hotel where people make a difference. Everyone is clear about what a guest expects from the beginning to the end of a visit. Thus, it is about the guest more than anything. That makes everyone feel special.
