The Apollo has a lovely foyer, but unfortunately the quality stops there. There is no porter, so I struggled to my room with my bags, having to go down stairs and through doors to get to it. It would be better if they took off the internal doors or made them automatitc. The rooms is shabby, with 70's furniture, holes in the curtains, and unmaintained bathroom tiles that are not stuck down.
The lighting in the room is too low to work in, despite the two tables. The bed is good however, with nice linen and pillows. Room service menu is a bit over the top, not a lot of basic food on it for the travelling worker who is watching what they eat.
