What we liked:
The room was modern and clean, and the shower was a decent size.
Free Wi-Fi in the lobby worked fine.
Breakfast included cooked options.
Things you should know:
Although there's a couple of supermarkets nearby, there's no refrigerator in the room, which is strange for a hotel of this type. There's also no tea & coffee making facilities.
We booked this hotel because our travel agent said they were able to accommodate our early flight. Not true. I spent two hours in the lobby while they were 'cleaning our room', although it was half an hour before they started work, so technically it only took them 90 minutes.
Maybe it's just one woman cleaning the whole hotel, because the next day while I was lying in bed, she tried to let herself in at about 4:30pm to finally clean the room. She's lucky I had the chain on the door, as I wasn't decent. :-)
I saw a review on here that says the Metro is 2 minutes away. It isn't. 15 minutes easy, and in summer that can feel like a long time.
A nice clean and modern hotel that's close to one shopping mall, with below par facilities and service. Stay if it's cheap, but don't try to check in early, and expect to get cabs. Hey, the cabs are great value anyway. ;-)
