We stayed here as part of a Contiki tour - the rooms were very good, with excellent bathrooms, free wi-fi, and good range of TV channels. The restaurant buffet was basic, but good - both dinner and breakfast.
This hotel is a 20 minute tram ride from the centre of town, so it's probably not suited for city breaks or romantic getaways, and in fact it seemed to have a number of other large tour groups there as well.
There were a few bars across the road, but no real nightlife to speak of in the local vicinity. Overall we were happy with the quality and standard of this hotel and it's facilities, though as I mentioned it's quite far out of the city so that's something to consider.
