Clean room. Helpful staff
The hotel location is just two blocks off the hub of Takism Square. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and their company Faros Restaurants are great. The staff is very hospitable but not pushy. The hotel is clean and neat and the rooms are smallish but nicely decorated and neat. The breakfast is more than you would expect at that price point.Free WiFi is always available in your room.
The beds could be a little more comfy for me. Their is construction going on nearby but it is only a visual problem. It does not impact your coming or going or stay.
