2/10 Poor

A lot of charges are not include in the final amount paid. We had to leave and go stay at another hotel.

Great hotel with spa facilities
The hotel is amazing. Bed is fluffy and cosy. Room is 4*. There is good breakfast. The hotel has a pool, spa and sauna. Gym was not operational for some reason. The only negative is the early check out time at 10. If you arrive late there is not much time to enjoy the room during short stay.

4/10 Fair

Hotel claims to be smoke free but I had the unfortunate experience of staying in room 105. The only window in the room opened on to a hotel terrace where people smoked. The ash tray was right next to my window. There is no AC so leaving the window open meant dealing w the smoker. Leaving the window closed meant the room was hot. The hotel is in a good location especially if you do not have a car. Do NOT stay in room 105.
