            Nice location. A bit tired. Good food. Safe.

            Atm not always working and when it works only certain card types accepted.

            Helpful staff. Good location. Large, comfortable room.

            Very disappointed with the state of the bathroom in my room. No shampoo or toothbrush on arrival which was a nuisance as I arrived very late so had to phone and wait for these items. Also the shower didn't work properly as very little water. Expect much better.
