Airport pickup was very convenient, especially as it was late. Manju was very welcoming and a great host. He gave us much information AND provided filtered water! So good. The shared meal was a wonderful idea.

Value doesn’t equal price
I came all the way from the airport to the airport and the check-in process was quite fast and the staff were friendly despite my late arrival. But comparing value to price, it is still expensive for the room.

Convenient location, friendly staff and relatively clean back yard. The facility is architecturally very sound including the interior design of all common areas.
