    • Disliked: Amenities

    The hotel just reopened, they don't have breakfast or housekeeping service unless is requested -which we were not notified about when we checked in. The pool and gym are closed, due to covid but based on the hoteloccupancy of the hotel they could have it open with no problem. We have stayed at other gradute hotels, this is why we expected more, we are a little disappointed about this one.
