Liked: The location isn´t bad, there are nice places to shop and eat in the area (esp.asian food and things).

Disliked: There is lack of WC and shower facilities (sorry but 2 showers and toilets for I dontevenknowhowmany rooms I didn´t consider sufficient). Free wifi or limited (1 hour/day maybe?) would do great deal in a facility like this. As would do small things like no charge for towels - 50c/piece does not kill anybody but..hey guys, you are not THAT cheap.
