in view of the good comments, I was looking forward to staying here. Upon arrival, everything looked promissing: nice reception, friendly staff (although I couldn't always understand their english;it's good to have trainees from all over the world but their english should be good too) etc.
i was taken to the room via stairs, tunnels bridges etc. to what was supposed to be a quiet room.I've rarely been so disappointed: the view was non existant: I looked at a wall and a series of hughe airco fans that made a terrible noise ( so avoid by all means room 141 and the neighbouring ones).
i decided to have dinner in one the restaurants (The .. Hare,): food was OK, but again so much noise.It was actually a simple british pub with drunken man and especially women. The style of this place was clearly not in line with the hotel's ambitions. I fled to the hotel bar but it was the same here: no calm serene atmosphere but loud night club music and a very loud crowd.
back in my room, I quickly figured out that i couldn't sleep there so I asked and got another room: it was tiny and at the price of 320 POUND a rip off.
