Even tho the property is a bit away from central it had shopping and dining options just a skip away and had very easy access to all forms of transit. The color combo was older but still very nice room was very large witha comfy bed and even ahad a tub. The only complaint is that only one elevator worked and was very tiny

Ok so this is a lengthy read but worth it so my initial feel was you get what you pay for but after my 5 day stay in this hotel I felt the neglect of fresh towels fresh sheets were things that cannot be stressed enough the rooms are small but not bad if your staying in them to do the bare minimum which is sleep I’ll give the good first because they are very far and few in between so good things the breakfast absolutely anazinf for the cost buffet as much as you want and they hold that to the point very food breakfast and last but certainly not least the costumer service these ppl will work to accommodate you and do their best but negatives so the place is clean at a moments glance but there’s things I’ve noticed walking around in socks I felt the crunch from crumbs before my stay sheets stained pillows as well covered up with clean pillowcases blankets stained and covered up with fitted sheets and mattress stains as wel the rooms say no smoking and no drinking but an eerie smell of smoke lingers through the halls last but not lease I cannot stress this ENOUGH CHECK YOUR TOWELS our towels were not clean and one had literally poop just a little bit of dried remnants but poop none the less there was hand towels that weren’t fully cleaned and every night it felt as if little ants were crawling on my skin this place is not clean whatsoever the place is very dated so any Americans coming here no hdmi no Bluetooth I will never stay there again and only 5 star top notch hotels
