Love this place. Great steam punk decor downstairs, clever but not overbearing. Rooms are comfy, bathroom great and internet easy to connect to and works a dream. Great value buffet breakfast. Everyone friendly

We had an 8 hour overnight layover between flights and chose this hotel to maximise sleeping time! It's great not having to leave the airport. You follow signs for flight connections when you land and the hotel is well signposted beyond immigration and the re-check in desks. Our room was big, clean and comfortable. The shower was good. We didn't... More

So, we arrived for a 7 hr stopover. Found that the room had dirty food marks all over the bathroom. We had to call twice to have it cleaned. TV didn't work. We were told the hotel didn't have any bottles of water as they had run out (too lazy to bring to the room more likely). So, thus far... More

I guess I was spoiled by the transit airport in Dubai, although I got a good nights sleep, there was joy much else to do here. A gym would have been nice, maybe a pool, but you don't get that. The access was easy, and you could get to the terminal with ease. The restaurant offerings in the terminal are... More

We stayed in the hotel twice between two flights. It is furnished nicely, not the usual business hotel style but a bit more creative, everything with a sort of reference to planes, airports etc. Rooms are fine and food is good. We had problems with the room we reserved, we got actally a room that was apparently not prepared, not... More

Slept one night during a transit between two flights. Hotel is situated in the terminal so no need to exit. The room was nice actually. The comfortable bed allowed a good night sleep. The service is basic but this is not really an issue in terms of what one would expect in a transit hotel. The price was a bit... More

After a long flight its easy to walk off the plane, go through customs and walk straight into your hotel. Good food, clean rooms, and secure.

Stayed here after getting off a flight before Safari the next morning. It served its purpose. The airline theme is pretty cool and is throughout the hotel. The gym is actually pretty good for a hotel. The "pool", if you can call it that, maybe used to be a swimming pool, but is now an algae filled pond surrounded by... More
