People like me choose hotels such as Citymax purely because they looks inviting on Expedia - Nice looking lobby, clean room, good rates compared to others, seems right on a map.
Well, like the advertised burger that looks so different on your plate, the compact lobby is chock full of dazed looking East Europeans, the basic rooms are small for 2 persons (OK for one), the bathrooms are dull, the fittings have reached their "use by" date and the view is very ordinary (or non existent) from 80 % of the rooms.
"The Huddle" Sports Bar in the Lobby is an unabashed pick up joint after dark, with scores of Filipino and East European working girls waiting forlornly for a customer, while a Live Band thumps out Dire Strait songs that resonate the lower levels.
Whats Good ? - The internet if free / The beds are comforable / The Gym is cool and up to date.
Whats Not? - The location is nowhere near any transport or shops, the room doors hold back no noise and you can hear the next room shower and flush.
Would I stay here again? - Not likely, unless......
