  • Really nice and cosy hotel. Chosen a room with a river view, it came with full length glass panel window. Really beautiful view from the room. Service staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast menu though is simple and yet with a good spread. Great staying experience Recommended to a friend who will be going in June.
  • Excellent staff. Helpful employees Great place to stay. Little bit lack of communication. Overall wonderful place to stay. Will recommend to my friends and family members and to everyone.
