The hotel is very close to the Business Park which is a plus for business trips. Subway is very close too and it takes less than half an hour to get to the city center. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable as expected for a 5 stars hotel, the staff is friendly and helpful.

We are a family of three with a toddler, and we enjoyed several days at this hotel.
