Stayed here as it was close to a venue we needed to be at for work, and also as I have Gold membership at Radisson. I have to admit that on arrival I was a little disappointed that no free upgrade was available with my gold membership. However even without this they did put me on a high floor, with good views and the normal complimentary items in my room.
The front of house staff were amazing, giving me tips about the city, recommending bars, helping me get tickets for a football match, etc. They deserve a pat on the back. Room and bed were very comfortable and the shower was great. Gym was good enough for a hotel of this size, a few cardio machines and a good selection of free weights.
We were very impressed with the hotel restaurant, service was a little slow but that was fine with us as we had no further plans. The food was great, we tried various local delicacies, the service was very friendly (although many of the restaurant staff had limited English) and the drinks list was more than enough.
All in all a great hotel in the middle of what is a very intriguing city.
My only comment would be to Radisson, who on their website state that gold members get no food/drink discount in various hotels, this being one of them. For this reason I didn't use my gold card to get discounts. At the end of the trip I found out I could get discount on food, and the hotel gave me a discount off my final bill, but the Radisson website should be amended to reflect this as this was a bit of an inconvenience.
