This isn't a bad place - it's just not a great place either.
The atmosphere is distinctly "hostel" type - but for that, it's great.
The reception was cool (the lady must have had a very bad day), but the guy the next morning was very friendly. The room was very big but hardly furnished (the old sofa was probably not moved since the Olympics in 1994)
Breakfast was nice.
The price is the same as other 4 star hotels, but the standard is not.
So I'd call it simply overpriced.
Location is not great but acceptable.
If you have a car, you will probably appreciate the free parking
