4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed in one of their larger suites on a business trip. The room is very nice, shower is one of those huge drench ones which is a big bonus. Breakfast is really good with a selection of hot and cold options. The only slight downside is that the purple and green lights outside the building were shining into the room... More

I highly recommend this hotel. Our room was fabulous, our breakfast delicious and the staff are a credit to the hotel so helpful and very friendly. Location is perfect just a few mins from the city, lots of taxis parked outside, bus stop opposite the hotel.Price was very reasonable considering such a top class hotel. Over all a great experience.

The hotel itself is wonderful with beautiful clean spacious rooms and a nice spa area. My brother in law can't praise the hotel staff highly enough. But... More

The place looks cool from the outside and it is nice when you go inside as well. The cafe is nice to the left and my favorite part of the place is the bar/restaurant to the right. Very good food and drinks there with very good service. Live music, people willing to hang out and share stories with you, etc.... More
