OK, to be fair, I wouldn't say it was merely "average", but when you think of Holiday Inn, you might wanna expect something greater in terms of stay experience.
Here is the breakdown.
Rooms are spacious. Beds awesome.
Gym is Small, but decent and pool not bad, with 3m (9ft) deep! Awesome for me anyway.
Staff is friendly.
Can be better:
Room heating system SUCKS! For 3 nights, I was freezing in the room, despite the heater at full blast.
Gym was more like an igloo!!! So hard to gym when the temp is like below 20 centigrades. Almost as if they didn't want you to use the gym.
Staff was friendly. No doubt. But they don't seem to be able to recommend good places to go, or things to do.
Elevators were small, slow and pathetic for a Holiday Inn standards.
Location wise, 15min walk to shopping areas and more touristy spots. So do expect to do some walking in the cold!
Breakfast selection was MISERABLE! Simple bread, eggs, sausages, french fry potatoes. Thats all.
Not right to say "average", but certainly not fantastic. There are definitely better hotels to choose from.
Marginal 3.5 stars.
