This large four-star hotel is located a couple of kilometres from the city centre, and despite its large entrance, the exterior façade is not very impressive. This hotel opened in 1996, but was completely renovated in late 2006. It is a modern and functional building with very spacious rooms for their over-sized beds. It houses 93 rooms, as well as 4 suites and 1 presidential suite, each with a bathroom, telephone, minibar, TV, AC, restaurant, meeting rooms, indoor pool, Jacuzzi, gym, pool, parking and garage. I have attached some pictures so you can see that it's worth a stay for its good services and, usually, good prices.
