My flight was canceled and the airline arranged for us to stay here overnight. The hotel is kinda dated, and it's evident from the way it's set up and the interiors of the public areas.
I got a double room, and each of the double beds were reasonably wide and comfy enough. No complaints here. Most of the lights are controlled by a bedside control panel, which is kinda old school.
The shower worked fine, and there was an old-fashioned clothes line that came in very handy, as I had no change of clothes and had to hand wash my clothes and hang them overnight.
The next morning my clothes were still very wet, but fortunately there was an iron and ironing board in my room, so I spent some time ironing my clothes until they were dry enough to wear.
This was a very short stay of less than 6 hours for me, but everything worked fine for me.
The fact that it was outside of the city center - and outside of all the traffic jams - can be a blessing, and it's relatively convenient in terms of getting to the airport.
