I went in January and it was virtually empty, hence the great price on the room. Lobby is very impressive. The elevator is, well, Greek.
Room was clean. I was solo and had plenty of space, but if I'd been with my wife it might have been crowded. My only real complaint about the room is that the walls were very thin. The self-close mechanism on the doors seems to be set such that they close with a loud bang, so you hear all your neighbors coming and going. I also had no problem hearing an adjacent TV.
Location is within 100m of the rental car district, which was a great bonus since I needed to rent a car at short notice. I also made very extensive use of the unlimited free wireless internet.
