This might be an ideal hotel for the businessperson but its not ideal for the tourist.
We were disappointed to find no tea/coffee making facilities in the room nor could reception provide me with a kettle - had to order hot water from room service. Breakfast was ok (restaurant staff were excellent). The main problem with the hotel is its location in a quiet residential area with no nearby restaurants or shops and its distance from the main tourist attractions. There is a free shuttle (6 persons) into the city centre - this has to be booked in advance and due to something getting lost in translation we were left waiting over an hour and a half for a ride back to the hotel. I wish I had paid a little more for a hotel more centrally located.
