Our arrival at holiday inn didn't get off to a great start. Arrived at 9pm, no porter in sight.
Got room keys and proceeded up in lifts. Looked at room number signs and realized we must be in wrong wing. Back to desk with luggage but no, the signs are wrong. Back to
Lift. Found room. Teeny tiny. Would be fine if for 1 businessman but tiny cupboard space, can't unpack one suitcase, let alone 2. (we have a child with us).
Bathroom you can barely turn around in. But everything is clean and the room has been refurbished which is a Big plus.
Room is at the back of hotel. The hotel is full. Windows aren't insulated. Between the cop car sirens and buses, not much sleep to be had on the first night but you get used to it.
Beds are small. There are two doubles in this room. Pillows pretty good and Aircon works.
Breakfast was ok. Staff are nice, friendly and professional. Especially at breakfast.
They are renovating the lobby loo so have to use pool/courtyard area bathroom that was really dirty. See photo.
But on the whole it was ok - I'd rate it 3 stars.
