Me and my girlfriend stayed at this hotel for one week in the beginning of April. We were positively surprised by the good location, the heavy loaded breakfast and the gentle staff. The Staffmembers were always there for you, booking a cab, giving you an extra towel or just give you some nice compliments. We liked that! Especially the smiling man at breakfast!
The gym looked nice, but we never had the time to try it out. The pool is more like a big bathtube, so don't expect to much of that!
The negative aspects about the hotel was that we had some trouble with the internet. (Really slow and at many times not working at all) The cleaningstaff were very eager to clean the room, so many mornings you woke up by a small whisper "hello..." outside the door. Ok for us, but we can imagine some people can get annoyed...
We also got robbed 200 meters from the hotell outside Mac Donalds at 6 pm, daylight, and lots of people around, which was a bit unpleasant. Be aware of walking in the city even during the day!
