Yes that was something. You cannot open a window because of the traffic noise and when we were there the A/C could not be prepared to function because it had been cold the week before....but it was warm when we were there; and it is all the same a five star hotel.
So we had on both occasions ( we were there twice within 8 days ) a warm, uncomfortable bad night.
I will not go back there not only because of the traffic noise and A/C but also because it is quit a hike... to get to the old center; at least a 45 minute walk to go down and an hour to walk up again. of course you can take taxi's (which are not very expensive) or a bus but you have to organize yourself then. In other words it is too far away from the old town with all the restaurants and monuments for my liking.
And then the breakfast prices: 19 euro per person. But as an alternative you can go to the food court of the enormous shopping mall in front of the hotel. we have not been there but there is a food court on the first floor; open until 23.00 everyday.
The staff at the reception is friendly and English speaking.
The rooms are really cozy, clean and nicely furnished but the noise!!!!!
We cannot fault the price: we paid through booking.com 86 euro per room without breakfast.
My *Average" rating concerns the traffic noise and the not working A/C.
Then a tip for an airport taxi. I recommend that when you arrive you take a voucher at the arrival hall ( clearly indicated) with a fix price to bring you to your hotel: 23 euro. If you take a taxi in front of the hotel they may charge you 10 euro more. Then: if you go by taxi from the hotel to the airport ask a taxi driver somewhere at a street corner: the prize should be between 13 and 16 euro from the hotel to the airport and not ( as we paid....) 29 euro!! Of course at arrival you can also take the Aerobus 1 which is situated right in front of the arrival hall: 7 euro for 2 persons and take the Aerobus back to the airport again.The bus does not go to every hotel but you can ask the driver to drop you at the nearest point for your hotel.
