My wife and I stayed one night at the Radisson Blu in a junior suite on the top floor. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good. The main room of the suite was very good, good size well appointed, the bedroom was adequate in size the bed was also very good.
The whole experience was badly let down by perhaps some of the worst bathroom design we have come across in an hotel of this standard.
1) There is a very short corridor off the bedroom, separated by a sliding glazed door, in which are two large wardrobes etc. At the end of this is a basin and mirror in a narrow space. There is nowhere to put any toiletries by the basin. We could only find a light switch for this corridor in the bedroom.
The basin was blocked, taking an age to drain. We asked for this to be looked at when we went out in the afternoon. Apparently this did happen but it was no better - there was talk of a design fault - but actually we still believe it was just blocked. (The bath water did drain). We advised reception when we left to continue to look at this as no guest would want this and could be considerably more vocal than we had been. We were going to be there just the one night.
2) Off this corridor not separated by any door (which clearly had been there at some point as you could see where hinges had been but I imagine this door would have made it very difficult to maneouvre) was a small area with a shower, WC and bath.
3) The shower had side spouts and a door that opened inwards. It was impossible to guage the water temperature of the shower without committing yourself to being in it. If you left the door open the side spouts shot water out into the small area of floor between the shower and the bath on the other side. Neither of us attempted to have a shower in the end.
4) The arrangement therefore meant there was nothing between any steam from the shower or the WC and the wardrobes, opposite the WC ,in the corridor.
One of the things you spend considerable money for in a hotel is to have confidence in the bathroom facilities. This was after all a suite. What you got you could put up with for a night but any longer would not have been nice.
So what to say. Otherwise a good hotel; otherwise a good living area for the suite (and a balcony), but wrecked by a clearly badly designed and inadequate bathroom. And yet what can the hotel do about it ?
It has to lose 2 stars for this.
The whole review is about the inadequacy of the bathroom in a junior suite
