Booked this hotel for the location and after having been there this weekend we found out that's what this hotel is all about.
The lobby looks good, slightly posh even. But as soon as you speak to the receptionist the fun is over. They all seem to be non-native British, from Pakistan or whatever and most of them were quite rude and cheeky.
We requested an early check-in and that was approved over the phone, but upon our arrival the receptionist seemed to be surprised about it, hesitant even to grant us a room.
The room we got though wasn't worth the early check-in. The airconditioning was broken, the shower was very cramped and the internet connection was anciently slow. Luckily, we were moved to another room after quite a bit of a fuss. That room seemed to be better only for nightfall when we were trying to sleep and could hear the elevator doors opening and closing all through the night. Oh, and one tip. Ask the housekeeping staff to please not slam the doors while they're working. They don't seem to realise people are trying to sleep in hotels.
