We were travelling with a group and the hotel was pre-organised and knew that the location was not ideal for our needs. Unless you plan on going to an exhibition, I would not recommend this hotel for it's location. There is nothing in the local vicinity and is around a 15-20 minute taxi ride into the city centre.
Four of us arrived at the same time, all prepaid and booked in several weeks before but took over an hour to check us all in.
Breakfast was probably the most basic I have experienced for an alleged 4* hotel, little choice and not particularly tasty. It's served from 7.00am until 10.00am - make sure you have finished eating at exactly 10.00am or your plate with food still on it will be cleared! Don't expect the breakfast area to be overly clean, several times there was food debris from the evening before still on the floor.
The bar downstairs was poorly managed, they ran out of lager twice and didn't have any gin for 3 days, it was always difficult to find staff to serve you and the bar was often left unattended.
The sky bar was a nice place to have an evening drink but again the bar man gave the impression that he really didn't want to be there?
The only good points to mention are the rooms are a good size and very clean and the free wifi.
