This is an excellent choice for anyone working at the Music Messe exhibition complex which was the case for me this time.
The striking curved exterior architecture and industrial chic concrete / metal / glass interior design elements in the public spaces inside immediately ticked all my aesthetic boxes, and it offered all the business orientated elements you would expect from a Rad.
The room – I was on the 14th floor - had floor to ceiling windows and a great view - well the view itself was not exactly what you’d call ‘picturesque’ but there was plenty of it … and all fine by me as I like industrial landscapes.
It was a little small side – even more so with the amount of luggage I carry!
Tastefully decorated, neutral with some nice splashes of colour and replica ‘old’ chairs in pillar-box red and matching desk. One wall of the bathroom was covered large red rose wallpaper which worked really well.
It was a window between the bathroom and the main room design, but you could not actually raise the blinds and see right through … which was a minor annoyance.
Unlike the last batch of hotels that I visited when in India – where I found the lack of hooks in the bathroom a common oversight – here there was a hook for everything pretty much everywhere!
However, the overall room efficiency lost a point for having no socket convenient for a mirror – so if you need a mirror to dry your hair, then you also need a long mains extension! (one of my standard pieces of travelling kit)
The tiniest hanging cupboard offered up five hangers – so the place is obviously geared to short stayers, and the minibar was fully stocked with the usual exorbitantly priced range.
Internet access was excellent. Cable into my Airport Express, and my own nice solid WIFI network was up-and-running to which I was able to connect all five devices. Most of the time it was super-fast and with plenty of bandwidth, and although I did notice a few blips at peak times, these were not enough to impede the large photo uploads or downloads that I needed to do! And …. It was free – I think this is a worldwide Radisson policy!
I had room service on a couple of occasions – quick, efficient and tasty!
My client for this trip also held a conference on one of the days plus an evening event / buffet dinner, which was excellent. There is a good bar on the ground floor. I didn’t make it for breakfast on any of the five days, but I am told that was also good.
About 20 minutes drive from the airport (with no traffic hold-ups) and therefore popular with air crews …. and there are also some restaurants and a bit of infrastructure within a short walk. It’s about a 10 minute taxi journey into the city centre, with a constant supply of cabs ranked up outside, and a 15 /20 minute walk to the Music Messe, depending on which Hall you need to get to.
I would definitely stay here again when working at the Messe and would recommend it to anyone else doing the same. If I needed to be in town, then I would look for something more central, but keep this in mind as a good Plan-B in the ‘tried, tested and works’ category!
High floors have excellent views across the city and local area
