How has this hotel rated in the past?
Apesar de não estar "no buchicho", este hotel tem uma localização boa, próximo a vias importantes da cidade e próximo ao centro comercial, sendo possível ir a pé até lá.

As instalações são boas, a manutenção deixa a desejar, o café da manhã é relativamente variado, contando com algumas frutas e a internet é paga à parte.
