Although the hotel is not all bad it suffers in a number of areas. Firstly, I would like to say that the hotel is comfortable and reasonably well positioned for the station and airport. However, it lets itself down in a number of areas that could easily be rectified if there was the corporate wish to do so.
My first gripe was that the room was not ready for us despite going away for 2 hours to give them time to prepare it. When we returned we had another 10 minute wait.
Secondly, the free wi-fi did not work in the room we were allocated. So, I had to move my bags to another room on another floor to get it to work.
The room allocated at the front of he hotel is extremely noisy with traffic up to about 11pm and then again from about 7 am onwards.
Thirdly, despite advertising a free shuttle bus from and to the airport and railway station, it turns out that the bus is only available free of charge if you book directly through them and not via assay jet or ' Booking.com' or some other agency. They charge a further €5 per person per trip thus running dual standards for their guests.
Although this sounds like a lot of whingeing, and it probably is, the hotel was ok. I have stayed in better for similar or less money.
