I reported on this hotel after a stay in November last year. Back again for a few days business. generally its a nice older style hotel in a good location which could very easily be really excellent. Room accommodation is generally okay and the beds are comfy. The restaurant downstairs is very good with great food.
It unfortunately is unloved with lack of care and attention to finishes, materials, and spaces being very evident. Needs a new coat of paint, replacement carpet, and a general spruce-up. For the money charged there is no excuse. Very shabby and tired looking. This could be a really good hotel with very little effort.
Really irritating small things like the pen supplied in the room, with the hotels name emblazoned on it, having a broken pocket clip and bits of plastic at the point broken off. How much is a cheap plastic pen to replace?
Final complaint is that the wifi internet connection is extremely poor/non existent despite the fact that they have several alleged hotspots throughout the hotel. These days there is no excuse for this in a capital city, particularly when you tell guests that wireless connections are available.
All in all frustratingly disappointing because it doesn't need much to really lift its game. Whilst I'd love to go back (under the right circumstances) I probably won't.
