    Great Hotel

    We exceptionally enjoy our stay at Maru Maru. We moved here after a night in a distinctive, awful hotel and fair one seems at the comfortable, clean hotel and room put a tremendous smile on our faces. The area is culminated, exceptionally central. Facilities are extraordinary. The only the thing I'd blame it on is the commotion we may listen from our room at night - possibly inquire for a room as distant away from the kitchen/live music on the rooftop as conceivable. In any case, would 100% remain here once more and would completely suggest to family and companions.

    Pleasant stay

    We had a pleasant stay at this centrally located hotel. We did not experience any problems apart from some noise from construction works early in the morning and late in the evening.
