Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This was great stay! The front desk staff was beyond kind, and even helped me bring my baggage to my room. The room was very clean, and I had a wonderful evening, slept very well, and was able to check out at 5AM to make it to the airport.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was initially given a room with a window that did not open as the handle was broken. I then asked for a room change but I had to wait until the next day for this to happen as the hotel was fully booked. Staff was very unfriendly and for the first time in my life I had to queue everytime I wanted to speak with someone at the reception. You won't have a number to call to speak with them but you can only send a text on WhatsApp and hoping for them to reply. Breakfast does not offer any dairy free option which was very upsetting given the price we paid for it. I do not recommend it
