“Good hotel if you love shopping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Hotel situated approximately 10min from the airport. Did not find any fre shuttle bus, but buses for airport stays outside the mall. The hotel is situated in a big mall with hundreds of stores, resturants including spa and cinema. Everything under one roof. But some way from city center, we stayed while visiting exhibition. Rooms was good, and first time I have been asked if I requested tub or shower. Recommended if you are having a early flight in the morning but have time in the evening before for shopping, if you are there for short stay, there is better airport hotels.

No problems during our stay. The room was tidy and fresh. Breakfast ok. The receptionists could have been more welcoming and a small smile wouldn´t have been a bad idea..
We ate in Amarillo and that was very nice experience overall.

The hotel is new, clean and rooms are quite nice. Breakfast buffet was standard. Flamingo is quite nice as a conference hotel, but with kids it was a disappointment because of the surrounding amenities: restaurants are pretty standard, the spa is not "luxurious" at all (and you are allowed to enter the spa with the family ticket - 60 € - only once even though you stay at he hotel,) the movie theater had its last children's movie at 3 p.m. on Saturday etc. There is nothing around the hotel (jogging paths etc.), so basically you need a car for any external activities.

Nice hotel and comfortable rooms with great view. Breakfast service was crowded on Saturday morning and occationally some trays were empty. The room was not perfectly cleaned, because there were dirty spots on floor.

I arrived at the hotel shortly after midnight after a delayed flight from London and was told that although I had a guaranteed booking they did not have a room for me. They did arrange a room at a nearby hotel, but what is the point of having a guaranteed booking if the hotel does not honour it.

Room Tip: Did not actually get the chance to stay there, so cannot comment on he room quality etc.
