7.4.Good.
  • 2.0.Poor

    I was in transit for one night. I spent more than one hour at the airport to get the bus to the hotel. After reaching the hotel, again spent half an hour in the check-in process. Reception staff are not co-operative and dedicated to their job. The room I got was disgusting. The shower was not proper. Charged $ 168 for just a few hours. They are exploiting the situation of COVID 19. They knew that travelers have no other option. I never recommend this hotel to anybody.

    It wasn't bad for a one night stay. The food was good and there were many precautions taken to keep everything clean.

    Overall a good hotel

    Overnight stay on transit during the COVID19 pandemic. Seems like the service was trying a lot but we ordered breakfast and never arrived. Interesting I was traveling with my brother and we had a hard time to check in in a two bed room, since the policy is that no two men can stay in the same room :).

    I was in quarantine there during transit. It is the best place to quarantine in the city, however the room had lots of hair on the floor and the service was very mixed - which was worse because you have no other way to get food and drink.

    It is difficult to rate this hotel during the Covid emergency . The structure is well kept and the personnel is efficient . But , you cannot use the pool , the gym or the wellness center . Security would not let you out of the room . A limited menu is currently served .Perhaps , an increase personnel in the kitchen will be able to produce better meals and at a reasonable time .

    okay, not great

    Stayed here for quarantine. The room service is dreadful. Wait time can be between 45-2 hours and i was on the executive level. The rooms are exceptionally clean. Biggest issue was with medical staff. They have often misplaced certificates of quarantine for a lot of guests.

    New hotel. Well constructed with good food options in Cafe and main dining room. However, not easy to navigate, particularly downstairs. Two wings with same room numbers did not help. Completely no smoking, even outside with no smoking facilities, which was perhaps overkill and ignored by several in our conference. Reception staff were new and slow and require improved training.
