Shamim Banu, za1 night trip
Very good 8,0
The same overall was good. Great location. The hotel decor is abit outdated. The suite itself was spacious an beautiful. My biggest issue was checking in... the lady that was assisting us was rude an unfriendly. We received bad service from her on both days. The cleaning staff were more friendly than the receptionist. Don't know if i would be back
