      Includes trasport from and to the airport. Friendly service. Good location and great value for the money.

      A little outdated. The hotel description offered cofeemakers but the rooms don't have them.

    • Group of friends

      Rooms are good as beds and cleanliness, but bathroom were quite poor if considering light and shower condition. The only room's window was located just in front of a wall, so no external view (and not much fresh air...). Staff is ok and, honestly, shuttles to/from airports (free of charge) is a real "plus" for this hotel. So, at the end, good quality vs. Price...

      Personnel friendly, breakfast ok.

      This hotel is really horrible, smelly rooms, a/c is off and it takes 2-3 hours to cool the room, bathroom are dirty, step down from shower to sink, which is a safety hazard. Shuttle service is horrible and arrives 45 minutes late. This hotel should be rated less than one star. I'm still waiting a reply from my email requesting at least 50% refund and nothing yet.

      Location was good and that was about it.

      All hotels in the Cresta Inn chain boast pools but none of them actually have them full and useable. They also charge you to use the phone in your room for local calls...who does that anymore? The staff spoke little to no english, and someone came into our room when we stepped out for a bit during the day. I mention this because we were only staying one night so there should be no reason for cleaning services to come in until after we've checked out! Far too expensive for what it offers.

      The room is so big and the hotel is near from the big shopping malls and down town

      A) The hair dryer in my room was brook, room# 508. B) No enough room to take the breakfast, so need to move between two dining rooms to do breakfast. C) Internet access is not stable at all, dropping all the time.

      Ease of booking. Receptionista great although no English. Bar and restaurant 24/7

      Beds need updating urgently. How can you have sex with that sort of noise assaulting your ears?

      comfortable with helpful staff

      There was a misunderstanding between,cresta and myself regarding airport shuttle. The hotel solved the problem but at my expense. Cresta management and I discussed the problem and realized the nature of the misunderstanding. They arranged a transfer at a pre agreed to price.

      Staff didn't talk English, was not very friendly.The key cards had to be released for room access every evening. This has been explained by the hotel manager after multiple days as an system issue due to the fact that I didn't pay the full rate. But he admitted that it was his mistake to give me a lower rate when we checked in (5 people in 2 similar rooms with 2 queen size beds).

      We had an excellent welcome at the Cresta Inn by very friendly, helpful and efficient reception staff. The room was spacious, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean with a large comfortable bed, big tv, bar fridge, plenty of hot water in the shower. The manager, Dino, was also extremely helpful and friendly. We highly recommend the Cresta Inn for business or leisure.

      The only slight negative was the restaurant that had items on the menu that we ordered and they then didn't have available. A smaller and more accurate menu would be better than a large one with items still not available.

      It is simple, but clean and confortable, a excellent value for money. It is located in a safe region, two blocks away of a excellent supermarket. It also offers free transfers to Allbrook Mall and Multiplaza Mall.

      Even though there is a 24 hour restaurant at the hotel, there is not a variety of meals available.
