First impressions are great. The place seems to have been recently renovated and location is hard to beat. The rooms are modern and clean. Excellent, I thought. I got upgraded to a King Suite which was huge. It even had two bathrooms!
Unfortunately my impression slowly changed. Ok there were no dead bodies in the room or anything but there were just lots of little things that actually just annoyed me. That said these issues are easily solved so maybe they are just trying to deal with a newly renovated hotel.
The internet access was some of the worst I've experienced anywhere which meant that I had to go to another location to do some work which was a real pain. Don't even think about using skype. At one stage I got a 200k download speed and 80k upload. That was at 5.30am so it can't exactly have been peek hours.
Some of the minor issues:
- Random light switches that didn't seem to do anything. Actually trying to find the light switches in the dark was fun!
- The volume on my TV set wasn't working correctly. I called front desk who promised to send someone up to my room to help. No one arrived.
- The fridge made very loud noises so I had to unplug it
- There are pipes in the walls and when someone in the next room uses their shower it is quite noisy in my room
- They have lovely "designer" seats in the room. One is directly in front of the wardrobe so you can't get the wardrobe without moving it.
- The gym is tiny. Maybe 6 machines. On a positive note there is a pool (although I didn't use it).
