Pros - nice new modern hotel on airport perimeter, reasonable price with somewhat less than standard HI Express breakfast (had a choice of cornflakes ... or cornflakes for cereal etc) and pleasant staff who are multilingual. Rooms clean and functional.
Two mins walk along the road there's a very acceptable pizza/pasta restaurant - Valentinos. The hotel advertises food but we never saw anyone eating there.
(Don't go to the Mickey Ds in the opposite direction next to the Park Hotel. The cost will give you indigestion if the food doesn't.)
Cons - due to road construction and closure the shuttle bus from airport took us a very long circuitous route through housing estates and over speed bumps making us wonder where the hell we were going.
Only every half- hour, has to be booked and inadequate for numbers at the peak times.
What's with this when this is obviously the airport stopover hotel?
The WiFi is free - for 30 mins and once you've logged on time starts. Don't try to use 5 mins and log on later. It's gone. I blew it.
There's no iron in room for travelers with crumpled clothes. Which is most of us. You have to ask at reception - in front of all the guys drinking at the bar and people checking in. Similarly you have to ask at the bar for a glass of ice. Never found the lobby ice machine they advertise on the TV info.
So it's an option - particularly if the roads get fixed and they improve the shuttle service to this hotel. Until they do I'm getting a more convenient hotel even if higher price.
The hotel advertises its TI rating so likely manager will read this and take note. For you it's all about improving the shuttle service please sir.
