We stayed two non consecutive nights at this hotel as part of a group trip.
The hotel is located in the downtown area. The Hotel was recently renovated to a very modern décor.
Although this location is considered a central location we never had the opportunity to experience it. What we did experience was the doorman’s anxiety that we should not linger in front of the hotel for fear that something might happen to us. Not a safe atmosphere.
Breakfast was part of our deal and offered a nice variety good quality (although I was served spoiled yougurt).
The rooms we received were small in size and very noisy. If you book a room, make sure that it does not face the street – you will not be able to sleep during the night since the main street is constantly busy!
When taking a shower, be careful, although there is a warning sign in the shower, the hot water is very very hot – it is very dangerous!
The mattresses were excellent in the room.
The first night we arrived we were assigned room 801 which is lodged in between the elevator shaft and the front main street. We could not get any sleep due to the noise that was generated from both locations. We asked to switch rooms but were told the hotel was fully booked. On our second visit we were booked room 601 which had the same problem, again we asked to move to a room not facing the main street and were given another room, but again facing the main street.
Although it is evident that a lot of money was invested in interior design, not a lot of though was invested in designing the spaces in the hotel. There is very little room in any of the public areas or in the hotel room. The elevators are designed so that two elevators serve part of the rooms and another two server another part. This of course caused a traffic jam when the group arrived.
It is evident that the Hotel did not complete it’s renovations – see enclosed pictures. In addition a serious flaw in sound proofing the rooms that face the street. There is a room air conditioner in each room instead of central air conditioning.
In summary: a Modern looking interior designed hotel with many architectural and design flaws. Location is walking distance from many attractions, but located on a very busy street and appears to be unsafe neighborhood.
