Make sure you know what you are booking!

Pros: The suite looked nice.
Cons: The smaller rooms do not look accurate on the website.
Location: The hotel is nearby the train station.
The pictures are not accurate. We booked the garden room. It was small and not worth the money. We saw the suite that was connected by a family room since it was open (I have no idea why). That room was nice. If you are going to stay here is should be in the suite. Otherwise- don't bother.
