For the price tha hotel was ok, metro into the city was fast and frequent.
The hotel has a shuttle to take you to the metro BUT only leaves on the hour.
Our frist 3 rides on the shuttle were not pleasent.
First morning we get in the van and set off the van is dirty and smells, we have to turn back to collect 2 more women from the hotel. The driver and one of the women he collects are both not happy and argue most of the way about the timing of the set off, only settles down when the driver threatens to pull over and leave the woman. Not a nice situation for my 6 and 3 year olds.
On returning that day we called the hotel 3 stops before as advised, was told van was there and would wait. When we arrived no van and after 4 more calls with the hotel saying they didnt know where the shuttle van was it finally arrived after an hour waiting in the hot hot weather, by that time too many people were waiting we could not all fit in.
The Second morning van sets off and drives round the carpark with the two side doors wide open! Anyone could of fallen out or been hit by the door. Not safe with so many young children in the van.
They advertise a Bar, restaurant and coffee shop, we tried to go to the bar to get a drink but it was over 25s only from 5.30pm that night- Wednesday! and almost every night it had a cover charge advestered by reception. The coffee shop does not serve tea not even hot water.. Think they took the name literally.
Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the caroark we were woken most night by loud drunk people leaving the bar.
There are NO resturants near here except in the hotel.
