Just back from a two night stay which ended very enjoyably. Unfortunately, my first night was less than restful: the windows of my first-floor room were directly above several large air-conditioning outlets serving the ground floor, and once I'd turned off the TV and settled down to sleep I discovered that the noise from them was amazingly loud. I actually got up and looked out, expecting to see a large lorry or similar in the adjacent car park with its engine running, before I discovered the real source.
In the morning, the pleasant chap on reception was sympathetic enough and offered me a room change. I was going to be out all day, so as instructed, I left my packed bag in the room for him to move for me.
When I arrived back at just past 1am, the desk staff were baffled by my request for my new room details: they knew nothing about it. It took three people around fifteen minutes to sort it all out, but eventually I went off to an excellent - and splendidly quiet - sleep. So the "sleep quality" rating below applies to only the first of my two nights.
As it happens, I was in a good mood and perfectly happy to wait while all this was done. But if I hadn't been, or had been particularly tired, my impression of the hotel would not have been anything like so positive.
All that apart, I enjoyed the place, the service, the decor, the size of the room(s) and the food. And the location is splendid.
