Not well advertised on any booking site as being a non-smoking building which meant getting 2 elevators, down 16 flights, crossing the road and standing in the street to have a cigarette. The room was quite small for 2 people travelling which made sorting luggage a pain with little storage space. Bathroom setup took up half the room and doesn't give a lot of privacy. Lack of mirror close to socket so difficult to do hair etc. Beds were very comfortable

Very much enjoyed this hotel. The staff is excellent and more than makes up for the certain sports that the property is slightly outdated. The on-site food and dining options is high quality though limited in selection. There is a small shopping center connected to hoel which has dining options, food and even a grocery store. All in all, I would gladly stay at this property again.
