RECOMMENDED!”

The hotel is not far from the city and has all the necessary facilities. The location is very strategic, not crowded and very easy in terms of parking. The cleanliness is top-notch, the room is very spacious, and very cheap for the price paid. The hotel also has a very clean dining area and the items sold in the cafe are very reasonable. I am very satisfied and will definitely come back!

Value for money”

Room is spacious with big bathroom. Aircond functioned well. The room, the beds, and bathroom was clean. But the curtain was torn and quite dirty. There was no TV in the room, but we didn’t miss it since we stayed just for a night, and we entertained ourselves with YouTube videos and some video games. There was no wardrobe in the room too (also not missed)
