Featured Review

by The-Littlest-Hobo
A pleasure to sleep in - particularly in you find the comfy couches. Brand new and clean I spent a night here before and after flights to the Galapagos. There was no hassle and plenty of seating available - including two comfortable couches outside of the restaurant. A little noisy on the first night with music being played quite loudly through airport speakers most of the night.
