  • The city's main square, a beautiful building. In the exhibition hall and fell to coincide with the US. It was a spacious and bright room. The daily market in front of the building.

  • The location of this place is incredibly convenient. Step outside of the train station and you're practically on the front steps. I stayed here for several days while attending a conference and have no complaints. The food at the restaurant was great.
  • I stayed this hotel to attend conference. Basically, nice and clean hotel. Staffs are very kind. Breakfast seems good. Room is bit small. Sometimes, the they don't clean up room. I am not sure this is the cheap pricing for conference rate reservation.
  • The service was spectacular. I can't thank the workers enough. Especially the ones that were working the breakfast area. For 3 mornings, the entire area was filled beyond belief but they kept up with everyone's demands and were never rude, or angry. They did everything with a smile. It was incredible. They even opened up the breakfast area 30 minutes earlier so that we could have breakfast before our big event. I am so thankful to the entire staff and crew that took care of us for 10 days. The cleaning crew also did a wonderful job. It was nice to come back to a very clean hotel every day after long activities. Thank you so much holiday inn!
  • It's in the heart of the city .... The nearest building to train station.
  • Great location, close to public transport. Got upgraded to an executive room, was quite functional with all amneties. Was a bit small though.
