The first thing that struck us on check in was how small the room was. We could barely fit around the bed! The second thing was we were given one bed and we weren't a couple. We went down to inquire about a room with two beds. The staff member at the front desk told us that she could sell us an upgrade for the equivalent of 60 USD. I asked if the hotel was full and she said no but "they are always hoping and expecting to sell more rooms" and even though we were already there we couldn't have two beds without paying more. Why not delight those customers you already have before waiting to woo customers who haven't shown up? We checked our reservation and while it did indeed say king, the bed in our room was a queen sized, maybe slightly larger, but definitely not a King as advertised.
Of course a comfortable bed isn't the only thing that cost extra...wifi, breakfast (which was about 30 euros or 45 USD for a just so-so offering), you name it, they hope you'll pay. Plus it's not worth those extras as the decor is just a basic no frills business hotel. The one bright spot is the beautiful top floor gym with a view of the airport. This miraculously is included with your room.
