An okay hotel, was here on business so no real complaints. But having travelled a lot, it's not really worthy of a 5 star rating. The TV is an old CRT with one English channel and a very bad refresh rate so it may give you a headache. No kettle or tea and coffee in the room. My room was on the 4th floor which overlooked the atrium/restaurant which was weird and I couldn't see what the weather was doing. I was a bit scared of leaving my curtains open in case everyone having breakfast/dinner could see me! However the the restaurant was empty every night, as it's quite expensive so it wasn't too noisy. Lobby and bar was smelled like smoke all the time, so if you're used to the smoking ban in other countries then this will be problem. Location good. Booked a taxi to the airport and the concierge tried to book me a hotel car for double the price. Insist on taxi even if she looks sulky! Apart from that the staff were good and spoke English.
