Adequate but no prize

The Novotel is obviously the local business hotel. No frills, no concierge, no tour desk, no amenities for long stay travelers. If restricted to the hotel for any reason...you will be bored. No gift shops or snacks. Come prepared with your own treats, particulary if you have children. Yes there is a pool, small and adjacent to a concrete landscape. No landscape to speak of. problems accessing local taxis. The room is small. Wash stations are located away from the toilet (an American pet pieve) Compared to the Radison, staff concern for comfort and safety was lacking.
