We stayed here for the weekend and loved it.
At first we got a bit lost as the GPS was pointing us to a vacant lot outside media city and we had to go around thrice and ask a passerby before we finally managed to reach the hotel. But upon check-in, everything just went smoothly. A nice Egyptian front desk officer checked us in and he offered to upgrade us to Business Class.
The room was quite small, which is understandable as this was a business hotel in the center of a business district. It was very quiet as we stayed on a weekend so the streets were pretty much deserted. But we didnt mind, we loved the quiet surroundings.
As we were upgraded to business class, we had an unlimited access to the business lounge and we just loved it!! The Filipino guy at the business class lounge desk was very nice and to sit outside until late at night listening to the wind and enjoying the quiet night was lovely! The food atthe lounge was also good. Speaking of food, this hotel had an amazing breakfast spread!!!!!!!! For a business hotel, we actually didnt expect much for breakfast but much to our surprise, the breakfast was way better than some luxury hotels we have stayed at. The cheese and meat selection were good! The fruit choices werent that much but whatever they had there, were good. We dont usually eat a lot during breakfast, but during our stay here, we did eat a whole lot. Hahahaha.
The hotel also offers free DVD rentals so we spent one whole night watching so many movies. though i would suggest that they expand the selection and have at least 2 copies per movie as some of the ones we wanted to borrow were not available. Though i wont complain less as this service was very nice.
Check-out was seamless. The staff were so nice and valet parking had no issues. I sure would love to come back here (for breakfast!!)
The hotel can do better with the pool though.
