          4.6

          Large size room

          Not really a 4 star hotel. A reasonable three star. Service was inflexible. Breakfast slow and then wasn't what we ordered. Our room was under the hard floor of a kitchen/breakfast room and there was noise of furniture and walking from about 5:30 am.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          paid for breakfast what a waste of money.plastic ham also chicken the cheese was curled up at the edges.could not be worse.
