I have stayed at this hotel often for work and continue to go there purely because of its location which is just off the highway.
Overall this hotel does not feel like a 4 star. Although it is quite modern inside, it feels a bit cheap. The rooms in particular are fairly small and very basic, with minimalistic, cheap-looking built-in furniture. There is one switch for all lights in the bedroom which means you are either in brightly lit up room or pitch black which is rather annoying and surprising for a supposed 4 star hotel. The bed is quite hard and there are only two, fairly flat pillows. I have never had a good night's sleep in these beds unfortunately. For these reasons the rooms do not feel very comfortable.
The breakfast is fine but could do with fresh juices instead of from concentrate and eggs are either scrambled or hard boiled.
Restaurant menu is ok but overpriced for what you get. The staff is not as attentive as they should be fir 4 stars. I once ordered a vegetable fritata and asked to not include potatoes which they did but then they served it with a side of fries which is not on the menu and were obviously unwanted...since I asked for no potatoes...
There is a small gym which has modern machines and a tv, but can get crowded!
I would not recommend this hotel for couples or for people who will be spending time in the hotel room.
