الفندق كان كثير قريب من ميدان التقسيم ومحطة المترو ومحطة havatus اللي توصل للمطار. الاكل ممتاز جدا، يجب تطوير خدمة التنظيف ووضع مناشف كل يوم، بدون الطلب لذلك. شكرا

Very good 8,0
Reasonable but fair....
Stay was reasonably good after room had to be changed a couple of times. Rooms at the front (street view) were very noisey all night due to poor window insulation. They also charge for bottled water in the room even though they say not to drink the tap water. Cleaning service could have also been better often seemed like it had been rushed. Staff at front desk were always willing to help. So overall was reasonable stay after a couple of noisey nights.
