Fair 4,0
Not accessible
room was tiny but clean. a/c was fine. but asked for a room on the first floor as there were several with the doors open and empty, clean and ready to go. I check in with 3 bags a cane and a prophetic leg and ask for ground floor. they proceed to put me on the 3rd floor and no elevator. then they state on page that there is an airport shuttle which there is not. not a happy disabled guy...

Excellent service and location
Some of the most helpful staff you will find anywhere. Excellent breakfast and when I left early on my last day they prepared sandwiches for me to take with me. They also were very helpful in storing a bag for me when i went traveling for a week. The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the bus station if you are using buses and there's a great restaurant diagonally opposite on the other side of the park which faces the hotel. Lot of shops cafes and restaurants in walking distance. The rooms were decent and clean and overall it was a great experience whether you are staying a few days or just staying overnight to use the airport, which is very close. There's also a free car-park on site.
