Unfortunately that is the only real positive I can offer for this hotel. The breakfast staff were friendly, but couldn't hide thier exasperation at being busy. The elevators are fast....but I wasn't in a rush to get to my room which was large and had a nice view but had dirty windows (on the inside), a tiny bathroom, and an incredilbey noisy air-con unit which didnt really cool the room as much as the noise would lead to you to beleive it might! I'm told there are some rooms renovated recently - I'd suggest you book one of them if you have to stay here. The location in the city is quite good and if you can get a super cheap rate, in the new rooms it might be OK...
