Chose this hotel as wanted something close to airport but with a bit of privacy/segregation for the kids in the same room for our very brief stay before heading to next destination 14 hours later after a long flight (but not wanting pay through the roof for such a short time by getting interconnecting rooms). To be fair we had had the flight from hell, and were all tired, seemed to wait forever for shuttle to arrive, my husband took care of our exhausted 2 yr old and 4yr old while I wheeled all our luggage to the back of van - driver stood there and did not help at all while he watched me struggle to put the bags in and epecting a tip for his non effort, and after a long flight and waiting around it seemed to take forever to get to the hotel. On arrival the young man on reception and I did not hit it off...I asked simple questions, he was defensive, saying had not received any e mails from me re my bedding requests, when they had replied on other matters...but no biggie just did not get that "welcoming feeling" The room itself was OK...but the pull out sofa for kids was right next to our bed, not around the corner as per website photos which is why I had chosen this place so the kids could go straight to sleep while we got things organised for next day, and once sofa was down was not easy to get past it to go to bathroom etc. Once I got over this, we managed to get a good sleep, whilst basic is served its purpose in the end of getting a good nights sleep. Breakfast the next morning was better than anticipated - including fruits/cereals/yoghurts rather than the anticipated muffins and bagels only!
