  • It is a nice place to stay, although a bit disorganized and some of the rooms are old and a bit dusty. The bar area is a good place to hang, with cool decorations, and the food is also good, although only served at certain hours. They have a good transfer system, which can take you anywhere. The free pickup from teh airport is convenient and you can save some money.
