The hotel gets bonus points for being walking distance from a big mall with a pleasant lake view, for using china instead of styrofoam for breakfast, and for the helpful staff at reception - but unfortunately, there were some minus points too...
Our room smelt of stale cigarette smoke (as did the 4th floor corridors) but all the windows are bolted shut so it is impossible to get any fresh air circulating. By the end of our stay it was just stifling - recycled air since how many years, you just don't want to think about it.
Breakfast was OK - a good selection - but the tables were dirty and staff made no effort to wipe them clean for the next diners. I complained on our second day, since I don't think guests should be having to clear other guests' mess away. It improved marginally, but the tables were still full of crumbs from previous diners. They also only have one - ONE - toaster, so there is an inevitable queue. It would not be too hard to just buy a second...
Overall, we would probably stay again, since it was good value for money, but some things could be improved, as stated above.
