As many others have commented, the location is not perfect for downtown, which requires 15 mins by taxi or 30 mins by bus, but it is well-located for the airport (there are as yet no hotels within walking distance of the airport) and for the burgeoning commercial centres Between the City and the Airport - the hotel adjoins the IBM complex.
The hotel is very clean, modern, and the facilities are good. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, and the band width is decent (maybe the hotel's neighbours had some influence here?). The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and my only gripe is the pillows are lumpy and not very comfortable.
The restaurant / bar area is roomy and the food is very good. I ate from the new local specialities menu, and especially enjoyed the zurek, a wholesome soup with sausage and boiled egg, served in a hollowed-out sour dough loaf.
I found the staff friendly and welcoming.
One major objection: when I paid my bill, the invoice total was automatically converted into Pounds Sterling. I protested, as I prefer to have some control over the rate at which payment is converted, through my own bank, and was told that the conversion is made automatically - the reception staff has no influence over the currency of the transaction. Beware: you will charged a 3% 'commission' for a transaction you did not ask for!
I would have given 4 stars if not for this unwanted intrusion in my financial affairs.
