This stay was really just about having a convenient location for a business meeting the following day. A colleague booked the hotel so I didn't have a say as to the size of the room. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a polite receptionist who did all of the usual and gave me my key. I can't remember the room number. However, I recall that the room was rather small. Of course, I was comparing it to previous hotels I'd stayed at, and "small" for one person is not necessary "small" for someone else. The bathroom struck me as being functional, but in need of some modifying/touching up.
I went out for dinner in the evening (can't remember where right now - it was a nice, modern place nearby that did great steaks (that's all I can remember). That's pretty useless, I know, but I can at least tell you that it's a left out of the hotel door, about a 10-minute walk. Still pretty useless, I admit! I'm going from 10-month-old memory, remember!
There were some wifi inconsistencies, but I suspect that had to do with peak times. Ordinarily, most hotels I stay at have high internet traffic, perhaps because of people like me trying to Skype their wife and children.
Breakfast was fairly simple, but just fine. No complaints in that regard.
As with most hotels I've stayed at, there were other guests who felt they had a right to walk and talk as if there were a competition to see who could make the most noise. This is not a fault of the hotel. Some people are either just that ignorant, or are inconsiderate. Earplugs have become a close friend.
I wasn't so sure if I wanted to stay there again (although I did, and will add that review as well) purely based on the size of the room. HOWEVER, I later learnt that the hotel had different room sizes with very reasonable rates to "upgrade".
