    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The location of the Novotel is quite convenient and central: unfortunately the room was quite dated and smaller than expected. The pool advertised looks completely different in person and was a big disappointment
