Effecient and friendly check in process. For a hotel in this part of the world the security is a little light. It is there, its gated, there are security folks around, but it would be pretty easy to poke a hole in their security perimeter - if you could call it that.
Room was clean, if a little tired, furniture relatevely modern, TV and electronics are up to date. Bed was good quality, comfortable and the linens were nice. Not sure the threadcount:)
Intenet connectivity in the room was quite good. No problem with streaming video or downloading large files.
Gym was mediocre. Half a dozen modern treadmills, tightly packed together. Very basic set of weight machines. Enough to get a basic workout, but no more...and does not take many people to become full.
Pool area - outdoors. Utilitarian, not particularly inviting or exciting.
Restaurants - Good breakfast at the casual dining one and quite a nice Indian restaurant onsite. There was also an Italian one, but I never ate there.
Location is good in the central business district, close to the other big hotels and a short walk to the main conference centre and many government office buildings. Safe neighbourhood - but of course take suitable precautions given the city.
Staff was a mix. Everyone was friendly, but lets just say that some were more effective than others.
