To be honest I went to this hotel with negative feelings to start with as my normal one, the Novotel, was not available. Now having said that it was not as bad as I was expecting.
Right next to the station, so was very handy as my meetings are at the airport. I like to stay in town though, so I can go out for a walk if I want to and not feel trapped out at the airport.
Must say the rooms are very well sound-proofed. Had 319 overlooking the station platforms and tracks behind the hotel, but did not hear anything. Had the newly refurbished bathroom, which is nicely done. Got a decent hairdryer, but a horrible shower curtain. (Sorry but I hate shower curtains) but appreciate a good hairdryer.
The TV was small, but at least they have many channels (I got to watch the BBC)
One very good thing, sockets next to the bed. Although they were those stupid Swiss/French ones that do not like the usual european (spanish) plugs. I think the french have got smaller ones that the spanish. At least I was able to plug my phone and iPad in next to the bed at night.
No Corby Trouser Press in the room of course. And although I did not use it, a colleague staying at the same hotel, told me the ironing room was a risky place, with a wire sticking out of the iron!
The only good thing about the restaurant for breakfast on the 8th floor is the beautiful view on a clear day. The selection is *!£^)(* and the staff are so unhappy I would suggest either new management or therapy.
Would not choose to go back to this place.
Oh! and yes it does not have a bar.
I am not sure why it has four stars.
