The room here was beautiful, big and well set up with lots of cupboard space. The bathroom and toilet were seperate and there was both a bath and a shower. It was very clean although there's some things that would bother a real clean freak. There was tea, coffee, kettle and microwave. The entertainment system was excellent with free wifi, tv and a good selection of movies in a variety of languages.
The staff were generally nice although I think the language barrier lead to some of them being unintentionally unhelpful, it paid to ask someone else later on who spoke better English. A staff member called a cab for me which I found very suspect. It was an unmarked taxi with no ID and no meter. He charged me a lot of money and I felt very uncomfortable - so perhaps watch out for that.
The location is a real issue. It is near the airport, but not that near, about a 10-15 min drive, plus the waiting. There is a shuttle bus but trying to get on it with all our luggage (traveling with kids at the time) at the airport was nearly impossible - we gave up and took a cab. To get to town you need to take the shuttle (which was fine with no luggage) to the airport, then take a long train ride to the city. It was a serious pain, taking up to two hours each way, and was especially difficult with kids. There is also basically no food or any entertainment near the hotel. It is in a big hotel complex with one close restaurant. The village is a 40 minute walk away and I was told there is very little to it. There is no restaurant within the hotel so no room service but they have a little fridge with expensive stuff that you can heat in your microwave.
I think if you need to stay near the airport you are best to stay at a hotel within the airport complex, and otherwise just stay somewhere accessible in the city. It really was a great, comfortable room, but if you actually want to get out and about (unless you have a car) it is not ideal.
