Front desk staff and housekeeping staff were pleasant and helpful. However, I kept having a bad experience with one of the employees who serves the breakfast in the morning (woman, wears glasses); she was rude, to say the least, and considering she was being pleasant with everyone else, I can’t help but take it personal considering it happened every timeI went downstairs for breakfast. When it comes to the hotel itself, gym is very tiny, has a dirty carpet, and weights are practically non existent (enough stationary bikes and treadmills, though). Air conditioning in the main foyer feels nice and is strong; however don’t let that fool you as in the rooms it is not controlled by the individual guest themselves, therefore the rooms can get quite hot during the day which makes them almost uninhabitable. The ceiling fan and the closing of the curtains helps, along with being practically naked. I did see a cockroach in the room. TV is small, no remote to be found. Bed was a good size, but had a spring mattress so it was quite uncomfortable. The hotel is within walking distance to several spots.

I really enjoyed the food. A substantial breakfast and good evening meal which always had a starter, meat, fish or veggie options, salads and a range of desserts. Very efficient restaurant with helpful and friendly staff. Although it advertises free parking, this was on the road outside and spaces were hard to find.
