Stayed one night after being picked up by the hotel airport shuttle which seemed to give preference to international rather than local arrivals. Disappointing not to be able to see the lake from the Hotel-options given at the front desk-40 minutes walk or a taxi ride to see the lake. Security was also mentioned. Opted instead to have a facial...

Hotel was quite old and put some interesting feature within the vicinity. Pool was always pack with tourist getting some tan, service was too slow and take time before you can get your food.

Nicely maintained old hotel within minutes of the airport. Happy and helpful staff in all departments. Updated bathroom in the room but tiny wall mounted TV with limited channels. Strong wifi throughout the huge premises of the hotel

Fairly decent hotel. I would rate it 3 star but not the 4 stars they claim. Bathrooms could do with an upgrade but the hotel provides everything a traveler needs. This hotel is good if you are only planning a short stay of 2 to 3 days. Service is fast and friendly. Wifi could be improved.
