9 October 2012 Entrance impression, good, however receptionists all act like automatons, no personality whatsoever. Road works immediatley outside the hotel (should be finished now). Arrived at room 518 after a trek through a buiding site which was full on with jack hammers. The room was compact... no room to find a place for the second suitcase!!!!! The shower room smelt of raw sewage, it seems we were not the only ones with a smell problem. The 8am garbage truck was a 7 day regular and building works the same. On the plus the rooms were serviced well and cleaners friendly. Inernet $5/hour minimum booked to your room. Suitcase storage $5/locker, it costs $10 if you have a slightly larger case because it won't fit two. No warning of building works and lack of promised facilities for internet booking or fee reduction. Like others we wouldn't have booked here had we known and for the record these works will go on to January. Enjoy.
