Great location, very friendly staff
The hotel is located in a very nice area which is perfect for those who are looking for a few days of partying and fun. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The rooms were quite small and there’s no view but the hotel manager said it will be renovated soon. So there’s hope for improvements!
