Breakfast was very good. The location was fantastic. It us close to metro and bus station. The cavahir AVM is right behind the hotel. The reception and workers are polite and kind. The pool was a little bit cold for us! Bed and pillows was very soft and comfortable. Thanks alot

Location: central, easy to get to and from the airport, plenty of local restaurants and groceries shops around, relatively safe. Food: very good quality, always served on time and hot, not too expensive. Customer service: great, efficient, fast and reliable. Well-being centre: I enjoyed the massage, location was relaxing plus I was able to receive the service without booking in advance. Slightly expensive and the therapist explicitly asked for money tools at the end of the massage which made me feel a little under pressure given we were both still in the room and I was yet to get my clothes back. Thank you The Craton hotel staff for making my stay enjoyable, including allowing me to check out one hour later.
