Normally stayed at the Intercon or Crowne Plaza, but decided to change.
The check in was very good, I has to wait for my room, but that was my fault.
The room I found impressive, added to which it had free wi-fi, which made it ideal. I would have liked a clock in the room. There were a number of minor problems with the room, but all were quickly fixed and resolved.
The breakfast was very good for the standard of hotel, good selection, and if you required pork sausages/bacon this was cooked specially for you.
The evening meal was less impressive in the Olivos restaurant, enjoyed the soup, but the Lebanese mixed grill was totally overpriced. When you order a mixed grill you expect more meat!!
Room service was not worth the price either. No bread served with the meal, what was ordered came incomplete and it was not presented in an appetising manner.
Used the coffee shop and had to wait for 20 minutes twice for service, the waiter just disappeared.
Overall it was just about worthwhile staying there, but it is so close that if the Intercon simply offered free wi-fi in the room I would return back there.
