The hotel wasn't horrible but it was far from nice - at least the staff were friendly. We stayed on the ground floor for 2 nights - the bed was terrible and needed to be replaced. The bathroom smelled and if you emptied the basin, muck regurgitated into the shower. These rooms open up onto a courtyard that has soaked astroturf. You need wellies and an umbrella to get to the lobby if it rains.
The second room was on the 4th floor. The room was nicer. The bed was better but not brilliant. Same problem with the drain - as soon as you let water out the basin, a smell came out the gurgling shower drain.
The lift was flooded twice so we had to take the stairs.
The breakfast was basic. A huge poster in the lobby promised a Brazilian feast (it was during the World Cup) - this turned out to be canned pineapple. This was the only fruit option and there was only one cold meat option - cheapish ham. The late breakfast was a slice of baguette with jam. Coffee was OK but the juice wasn't great.
I won't stay here again despite its convenient location.
And of course English people only need news channels for entertainment.
