The accommodations are fine the decor is very nice and if you intention is to be close to the city for work or whatever then it is a great location however these are the cons:
Reception doesn't start until1pm so if you want to check in when they're not around you kind of call and check yourself in as we did and nobody ever came to welcome us or show us around give us any info etc.... And furthermore on the day that my luggage was getting delivered from the airport as it was lost there was nobody at reception the whole day as the person yes just one person called out sick. It is ridiculous to think that a business cannot function if one employee has a hangover from the weekend. I can't imagine this happening In a hotel but it did. And my luggage was sent back to the black hole that is the airport because nobody not even housekeeping accepted it. There's no manager or employees visible at any time.
Another con is that it was sooooo hot the first week of our trip and there is no air conditioning as is common in Europe but the ventilation is not enough. They gave us 3 fans for a 2 bedroom 2 story penthiouse apartment which just wasn't enough.
More cons include insufficient communication with us for the hotel to inform us of anything, only 2 forks in drawer for family of 5 staying over one month, small waste baskets fill up quickly and we have to empty them out ourselves all the time by housekeeping g is just once per week, another problem is that both showers overflow and wet the whole floor and we have to use our towels to dry it up. The apt also wasn't dirty but wasn't as clean as I would have liked for it to be when we arrived. Overall I don't hate it here but don't think I would stay here again. Pillows should also be fluffier and more.
