Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The photos is not representative of what it actually looks like. It is outdated and feel like you walked into the 70's. The cushions are horrible and cannot be used for sleeping at all. The place is very noisy with people comming and going as late as 2am in the morning, standing in the parking area and visiting. We arrived at 16h00 and was checked in by security. Only then were we notified of a breakage fee for which I had to give my full credit card info which was written on a piece of paper (not very secure) Some of the services were only available when you purchase vouchers and this could only be done during office hours.

Family friendly
Family friendly establishment. We stayed in apartment 19. The only problem it was close to the laundry and if you’re a light sleeper the noise can be unbearable. Friendly staff and the check in was seamless. The only problem is the administrative intensive process of checking inventory. They need to embrace technology
