    Very average and old fashion. I wouldn’t give it more than 2-3 stars. It is far away from the city and nothing close by. I don’t think I will stay there again.

    I don’t know how they said it’s 5 star hotel. It’s not that’s clean, every thing is old. Funny thing, I was bringing food from out side, they asked me to sign a paper that this food is under my responsibility, it’s ok, I sign the paper. Then the man told me next time bring door for us.

    the hotel does not have the option to keep a credit card on file and capture an amount for amenities. the options they have is either a cash deposit or a full credit card charge on the card and then refund it upon leaving if not needed which would take 14 days to process as they said.
