I stayed at the hotel with my wife and 2 sons aged 16 and 14. We had a family room that had 4 beds. Hotel has a decent local. €26 by taxi from airport.
Check in however took 20 mins. I don't know what the problem is but after I mentioned to the check in staff that it's taking too long, she said her system was slow but on the other side, the other check in staff checked in 3 different people whilst I was still checking in. I was getting impatient and annoyed after our flight.
Room is superbly clean. House keeping does a great job. We didn't order any room service to try that. We didn't book the rooms with breakfast so we always mentioned that to staff when my wife and I went for breakfast as our sons were making use of time to sleep in before walking and touring all day. For 4 days, every time we got to the breakfast hall, I always had to tell mainly the same person that we want the breakfast billed to our room. This I had to mention always abt 3 times before they understood me.
Breakfast was spread all over the hall. It was on our last day that we found out where the yoghurt was placed. It could be placed all closer to each other instead of spread sparingly all over.
The pool at the 8th floor is very basic. 9am deep. In April/May, the water is too cold to be used.
The gym at -1 level and Sauna is good enough. You can have a good jog on the 2 treadmills and a workout at the work station. Didn't try the sauna but it looked great.
One set back is that even though wifi is free, the Internet speed is rediculously slow.
In general, it's a great place as for us, cleanliness is our top priority and we got a room for 4 people.
To the management, keep up the good work and look into the small matters I've mentioned and others have mentioned as well.
Thank you for giving us a nice stay
