Business traveller
Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very nice facility and helpful staff. The cleaning was a little less accurate than last time I stayed here, but still good. I was facing the road and it was very noisy due to loud people partying until late (I think there is a bar there), so make sure to ask for earplugs at the reception.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
If you want to stay awake all night, then choose this hotel. Teenagers shouting, screaming, and partying all night in front of the hotel. The rooms are not sound proof. So forget about sleeping at night!

Good location, average everything else
A great location. Comfortable beds and the rooms are OK. Breakfast isn't great and perhaps a bit expensive overall.
