Myself and 3 friends have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. Its a little further from the centre than we originally wanted, but after reading the reviews we decided to book it.
I am glad we did, as its a lovely hotel and with tram 13 just around the corner, it made it so easy to get around and at 16.50 Euro for a 3 day pass, it was great value. The rooms were lovely, everything clean. Just a few things which stopped me from giving it a 5 rating, firstly, the restaurant has a very limited choice & is not cheap, I paid 22 Euro for a Hamburger and chips but the quality was good. I think if they widened the choice more quests would eat there. Secondly, the cleaners did unfortunately leave my door open all day while I was out. Luckily nothing was taken & the reception were very apologetic. Lastly, its a shame you can not purchase a coffee in the lobby area. If you want a coffee you have to go up to the bar on the 17 floor, its a lovely area, but not enough seats to relax and have a coffee with friends when its busy.
The breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice, their pancakes were delicious. Nearly all the staff were lovely especially Gina who greeted quests every morning. Also a waiter called Tieste (i think) was lovely. Staff such as these should be acknowledged as it makes a stay so much more pleasant and helps a hotels reputation. The waiter called Mark at the bar could learn something from the others, as he defiantly needs his people skills improving. The hotel lays on a free shuttle from the airport to hotel, but it costs 5 Euro each to return to the airport, this was very handy.
All in all we had a lovely stay and would defiantly recommend this hotel to others.
I would defiantly stay at this hotel again.
