In 2013, almost everyone needs access to internet when you are travelling. Wifi in hotel is no more than a commodity. But this hotel is charging you more for 24 hours than a good dinner. Similarly, breakfast is awfully expensive. Of course you can have breakfast elsewhere and you can use wifi for free in the lobby and that's my point. This kind of commercial policy is more making you upset than really useful.
The staff was great though, the lobby is really nice, the restaurant was OK but not fantastic. Public transport is close, so is the airport. But the close neighborhood is not exactly pleasant - the hotel is very close to the train line and to a car re seller.
The room was very standard for this price (not cheap), which means it was clean, functional, and the bed was great. They told me I was upgraded to a junior suite as it was my first visit. Nice but quite useless for me, I would prefer from far no upgrade but not being (over)charged for Wifi. I could hear the train from my room too.
So as a conclusion, an hotel close to the airport, but not with defaults not acceptable for this kind of somewhat expensive hotel.
