We stayed here for 3 nights (May 30th to Jun 2nd) and were in room 316.
Hotel was easy enough to find after getting off the bus from the airport and we had a warm welcome on arrival and were soon checked in.
The lobby area is very nice.
The main lift was out of action but there was a secondary lift and we soon found the room.
The room was on the small side but this was not overly a concern as we intended to be out in the city most of the time anyway. However the room was initially only set up for one person and there was two of us. One cup, one lot of supplies, one towel, one pillow etc. It took a few attempts to get this sorted but sorted it was.
The room was very clean but definitely had a dated feel to it, with wall paper in some places visibly marked with age and coming away from the wall.
The bathroom was compact but again very clean and with the usual supply of toiletries you would expect. Shower had plentiful hot water and was quite powerful, which to me was a lovely bonus.
The room had triple glazing and very dark drapes so whilst it looked out on a busy street, was close to the station and with bright lights outside none of this intruded in to the room which made for a very restful nights sleep.
The bed was very comfortable, initially I thought maybe a tad too soft but proved to give a very good nights sleep.
Plenty of power points through the room but the downside was as the "fob" on the key had to be inserted to activate the lights etc once it was removed all power ceased which meant you couldn't charge items up whilst not in the room.
There was a free to use room safe in the room, which I always like to see and even better as it was free to use. There were electronic type safes in the lobby area that were also free to use.
WIFI was good throughout the hotel. Initially a few problems logging in but the helpful staff on the front desk resolved that very quickly for us.
Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. However on the 2nd day we did oversleep and found that choice was limited (09:30) as they were not replenishing items plus seating had to be waited for whilst others had breakfast. For the size of the hotel the breakfast area is probably too small. However that is a minor niggle as the days we did get there early for breakfast the food was excellent, the range very good and the coffee great.
We didn't try out the spa area.
Staff were very helpful and very friendly and booked us a cab for our trip back to the airport and it was at a better rate than hailing a cab outside.
All in all a very good value hotel for the price paid and in a great location, just minutes away from the metro and with a stop for tram 4 literally just across the road.
We would recommend this hotel to other travellers.
