                            • Good quality beds, lobby was comfortable and the staff were very nice. The rooms were very clean and modern, breakfast was great too.

                              Pillows too big.

                            • The location is perfect and room is very well equiped.

                              Bathroom counter was dusty and the couches in the Novo bar were uncomfortable. 100 and the food was mediocre.
