Short term stay ok, but need to improve breakfast
It's a good hotel, nice employees and large parking. The rooms are large but look like old, and the breakfast is very poor, just a couple of things to eat, for a four stars hotel the need to improve it.

Bad experience
It took so long for them to process the check-in. There were molds in the cover page of the menu. There was no hairblower in our room as it was out of stock, as they say. And, we had 1 guest who visited, they kept calling us until we give here ID, eventhough we informed them already that we will pass by the reception on our way out, after we finish getting ready. In the morning they called us again to remind us about our check-out time.
