When I arrived thought this was going to be a nice hotel. Great location but after 3 days decided one of the worst hotels I have stayed in.
1. Darkest bedrooms I have ever stayed in - cannot read a book with out straining your eyes.
2. Reception gives false impression as it is bright and up to date looking, the rooms décor is very tired looking as is the bar.
3. Road works outside are a real issue.
4. To get from the hotel requires dodging bicycles, trams, buses... this is not the hotels fault but I wonder how many tourists get hurt around this area as bikes appear to ignore any rules of the road.
5. food in the restaurant was terrible - myself and my work colleague thought the food was poorly presented and not the greatest - the lettuce was limp in the extreme on a salad I had. I will say the staff were pleasant but seemed to be struggling to cope.
6. Spa times were not that convenient.
7. Breakfast was a very non-descript affair.
