The room was spacious, neat & clean. The king sized bed was comfortable, and we appreciated having chairs to sit on. We only ate one meal in the hotel, which was a buffet dinner. Good food, but pricey. The hotel is located on an incredibly busy main road, so the rooms are noisy. We stayed on the 5th floor the first night, and then moved to the 9th floor for remaining nights due to the noise. Crossing the busy main road to get into the city centre is dangerous, and unfortunately there is no pedestrian crossing nearby.
Wi-Fi was non-existent. Did not work on either floor we stayed on, but worked well (fast!) in the lobby.
The reception staff are hit & miss, but Susan who works afternoon/evenings is fantastic. Super helpful & speaks fluent English.
