  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Hotel is located in a dead end street and quiet area. The hotel was built on top of ruins and can be viewed in the main lobby. We parked in front of their hotel for free. Staff at front desk and sit floor restaurant were excellent with great food. Gym had only one thread mill and the lots of weight lifting machines. The rooms are clean, good bed, spacious, with big bathroom. Would definitely recommend this place!!! Center of town is nearby!!!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Archaeological ruins in the bottom of the hotel were unique. Very disappointed with what was supposed to be a 5-star hotel that would/could not turn on the air conditioning because they were still in "winter mode". Recommendation was to open the windows which brought in the outside noise and humidity.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Awful experience: while doing my booking I asked to provide me with a mattress topper and a summer blanket. The hotel did not reply. When I arrived, I discovered that non was provided. The bed was awful hard. Air conditioning did not work. There was dirt in the room (nails cut by someone before me near bed). The shower was overflowing. So basically awful sleeping conditions, and no good shower. Escalating the issue to hotel manager brought no result - as a consolation I got a voucher for a meal in their restaurant....

    Nice hotel but not for weekends

    Make sure Not! to stay there during weekends! There is a dance club close to the hotel that makes the hotel's wall to shake and to be very uncomfortable to sleep. At the reception they said that it is like that every weekend. The 2nd floor contains rooms that are with window but it's like a close patio and not aloowing to breath. We asked to change the room and they changed it to an upper room which was great. During the week it is a very nice hotel and the staff is very good. The cleaning lady doesn't put water every day and doesn't add soap and shampoo. Location is very good!
