Thank you for your reponse. Unfortunately like in more city centre hotels, not all rooms have a nice view.

Convenient location, nicely decorated lobby, however once passed here the corridors are very dark and quite eerie. The key card had no indication which way up or round it goes in the door which led to several minutes of frustration only to find out it didn't work in the first place. The room was nicely decorated and a free safe... More
