When I arrived at this hotel I was impressed, it looked quite pretty. My room was on the 11th floor and when I got out of the lift there was this awful smell in the corridor. My room was outdated and the bath had a bit of mold around the edges. The shower was noisy and you could hear the next rooms shower as well. The most important thing was there was no Wi-Fi in the room and I had to go the lobby to use it. Breakfast room was really crowded and I had to share a table with other people on one day (which is a little unnerving). Service was good though so not all negative. This hotel was a little bit out the way which didnt make me feel like venturing out on my own.
