Verified guest review

8/10 Very good

Pros: Our room was large, clean & pleasant, and we were allowed early check in and late check out. The location was very convenient. Cons: The restaurants were closed (apart from breakfast buffet restaurant) and the room service menu only had a fraction of the dishes shown on the menu. The TV service had a very limited selection of channels of interest to a European.
