Modern property, which seems well-staffed numerically, but they were a mixed bunch - some very pleasant and helpful but others less-so. For example, my companion was quite distraught because she'd left her laptop power supply at home, but none of the staff seemed too interested in helping her and it took an exceedingly-kind guest next to her in the queue to loan her her own. This lady rightly suggested that the hotel lost property store must be full of laptop power supplies, but there was little or no willingness on the part of the staff to help her out.
The whole hotel - both corridors and bedrooms - seemed to be on the chilly side, climatically, despite the extensive air conditioning, or perhaps because of it.
Breakfasts were usual offerings and adequate enough, except for the disgustingly-unpalatable coffee - drink the tea if you can. And the raucous and intrusive and (to me) unwanted backround music which constantly plays.
Ate at their City Cafe, which had some accomplished dishes on offer and some pleasant management and service staff:recommended.
All in all, recommended too, but with a few reservations.
