I chose to stay in a hotel to help them stay alive in the competition with Air BNB, since hotels pay taxes and Air BNB don't. It happened to be a bad choice of who to fight for - the whole stay was bad, from begining to end. Staff members will smile and chit-chat, but what's the point if the service is just so bad? Bad bed, bad cleaning, no fair price for breakfast as there are incredible baleries around. Room too hot and it was spring time! Lesson learnt, next time Air BNB hands down.

Good location, breakfast is ordinary, staff are friendly. You’re not allowed under any circumstances to get an early check in. But they are kind enough to hold the luggage for u. Unfortunately house keeping services is not good. They don’t change the towels, the soap was empty as well and no one refilled it, they unlock the door without knocking. Expensive as for the value of money comparing to the rooms and it requires maintenance.
