What everyone said about the hotel's air-conditioning is true. It's useless calling room service as all they do is to come in and turn the thermostat to 16C. Spent 3 nights in April with warm and stale air. Fortunately, my wife was smart enough to insist in having a standing fan in the room. It was just bearable with the window opened and the fan circulating the air. Bear in mind, the outside temperature was averaging 20C but the room was averaging 28C!
The temperature must be centrally controlled as after much complain from us and other guest, the air conditioning starts to work!
Hotel is also far away from everywhere - no shops, no restaurant. Basically, a nice hotel in the middle of a new district with hardly any facilities. To be fair, you can find one restaurant in the hotel and one outside. Wifi is only available in the lobby. They have limited wifi routers for room.
