I was visited this hotel with my friends . First say the food of this hotel is good . Also room service is available and it is very good. Interior design is also impressive. Therefore I recommend this place for four star.

Room was not nice, carpet didn't meet together, mattresses are old with springs in your back.

Well this place was a disappointment. Booked based on price and three star rating. Really can't understand how this achieves a 3 star rating? Room was a decent size with twin beds.

If you book this hotel because of free parking (as we did) or because of having nice romantic evenings - dont do it. 'Free' Parking ment to park our car on the street, where the locals are parking.
