It’s always fun to be among the first guests to witness the youthful enthusiasm and the initial uncertainties of a hotel opening. At this stage everyone is eager to do everything the very best way possible. But with an occupancy of around 5% it shouldn’t be too difficult either.
On the other hand I’ve got little doubt that it’s going to stay even when operations peak.
The facility itself carries great potential also. Apart from the exterior it’s rather tastefully decorated all ‘round and the rooms are unusually sizeable. The bathroom is a dancehall and the ‘regular’ king room features a full size couch without being congested. It’s a proper living space. Of course it’s also equipped with whatever you’d expect including an iron and ironing board in all rooms – which you would normally have to ask for at most places.
Breakfast is terrific with a vast selection of food, but with less than 10 having breakfast at the same time I didn’t really have a chance to see how it would coop with a full house. Dinner menu is limited, but you’re not about to spend weeks here anyway. Speed would need to improve but food quality is exceptional. It’s reasonably priced too.
The 8-10 minute ride from the airport isn’t going to be a scenic route as it will take you thru backyards of freight companies, so I would suggest installing some entertainment on the shuttle as many hotels do. The same goes for the view. Even though the building has 13 floors, there’s nothing to see, so the location of your room makes absolutely no difference.
