Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2010

Very nice modern hotel located in the centre of the city. Rooms are spotlessly clean and very spacious, good facilities with free internet connection in the room. Also has nice restaurants and spa facilities.

Only minor downside was it took a little while to find the hotel as the map on the website was inaccurate. Called for directions and the staff were very helpful.

The rooms are all very clean, the housekeeping is just perfect.
The location is very good also (in the city center).
Staff is very helpful and friendly. The laundry is very quick and the quality is great.
I haven't tried the pool (but I've seen it - it's small) but then for the city center it's more than enough. I haven't tried either the fitness, but it looks modern and neat.

The only thing which is to be improved is.... the food!
Breakfast is... ok (not more). But far
I haven't tried lunch.
Dinner (the so called "pasta buffet" or "italian buffet") is really average quality. Very edible, but far from what you would expect compared to the other services of the hotel.

And also it misses a "bar" or "lounge area". Even though the lobby is pleasant, it remains a lobby. And the cafeteria behind needs some large sofas to laze about in...

I don't know if it's "only" 4 stars because of the no-alcohol policy or because of the food quality, but definitely, if you don't eat in the hotel (there are so many other places around) i would give it very easily a 5 stars notation.

Great location, plenty of parking, very nice breakfast., beautiful hotel at a very good rate. Bring the British/Middle East electrical adapter. Also wireless internet is in the lobby and coffee shop and restaurant areas. The staff did hook up a wireless router when I discussed needing Wireless was need at various times from my room. The CEO introduced himself to me in the coffeshop, making sure everything was ok. Everything was just great.
