The hotel as such is a bit and needs renovation. This seems to be ongoing. Some public areas have been given a lifting and from my understanding the rooms are getting a similar treatement. I did not get a renovated room.
The room was nevertheless comfortable and I had a very good (but short due to my early departure) rest.
The personal at the hotel is very kind and makes the stay particularly pleasant.
Wifi in lobby and rooms are convenient.
Prize tag is competitive.
For the location you will need a cab to go to the city centre, but it is easy to get around from there throughout the whole city.
The transfer to and from the airport is not cheap (25 usd per person) but very comfortable.
All in all a good hotel. I would return.
