I stayed here on business - upon checking in, the receptionist told me I had been upgraded at no extra cost! I was very excited by this - however less so when I got to my room, which was in the basement. It was a decent size, very clean with a nice bathroom, however very little natural light, and the desk lamp didn't work.
The two "windows" were close the ceiling and as it was so hot (and there was no aircon) I opened them - only to have my room then smell of smoke from the smokers on the path outside. If I hadn't already unpacked all my stuff by then, I would have requested a different room! So I shut the windows and the staff very helpfully brought me a fan.
I ordered room service, which arrived within the stated timeframe and was of OK quality - but the menu itself was pretty limited. On the plus side, they were very quick to exchange the wrong drink that they had brought down.
Breakfast was good and I thought the dining room was pleasant but the chair I sat in was just a fraction too high. I had wireless internet in my room which I didn't think was free, but I didn't enter any credit card details and it wasn't on my bill when I checked out either. So maybe it was :)
I'm not sure I would stay here again as I'm sure there are nicer hotels for the same price.
