Our last visit to this hotel was for a two night shopping weekend. We have stayed at this hotel usually twice a year since it first opened and have always found it a great place to stay.
As most of the other reviews say the breakfast is great, rooms are clean and well equipped and any problems or issues are quickly sorted The location is very central being close to the shops and railway station. It is also only a five minute walk from the airport bus which is way cheaper than a taxi.
It is situated in the red light district but this certainly provides some viewing entertainment from the bar late in the evening! and I have always felt safe walking to/from the city centre in the evening but probably would not do so in the early morning hours.
The hotel is starting to show its age in places though and they should really consider refurbishment in the near future.
The staff we have always found to be excellent and eager to help and this last visit was no exception. Many have been there from its opening and always make us feel at home.

I stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. Very nice hotel indeed. I recommend the grilled shrimps followed by the spit roast chicken in the hotel's Collage restaurant mmmmmmmmmm. But check your restaurant bill for accuracy.

Stayed here because it was central and modern. Check-in was smooth but given smoking room which obviously you could tell but I didn't bother to change. Service in bars good and food good quality. Both bars are pretty soulless and depressing if you're there by yourself in the evening and actually not comfortable.

Rooms modern but strange layout with trendy central TV desk tower but this made room cramped and smaller than it actually is. Nice bathroom but no bath. Overall clean and comfortable. Corkscrew cane apart and hotel replaced the half bottle with a full bottle at no extra cost for the inconvenience, nice touch. Again all roomservice staff excellent.

Never received alarm clock call even hough the front desk showed it was programmed in...

Liked the internet PC near front desk which was easy to use as all you do is enter your room number/name for access - no buying tickets with codes etc.

Pool/Gym is run by LA Fitness and is not just for hotel use but was a proper modern fully equipped facility.
Location is pretty good for shopping and trains.

Overall excellent for business travellers - not at all romatic or intimate.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel recently for two nights. We encoutered a problem on check in to do with the website we booked our room through. I found the manager on duty to be helpful and professional in dealing with the problem.

The hotel itself has an excellent location. We ate in the restaurant the first night and the food was quite nice. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall though i felt a little let down by the room. Ours was quite small and the bed was very, very soft. The view was not good at all and generally i have paid a lot less and gotton much nicer rooms in various other hotels in the past. Overall the hotel is quite nice but a little over priced for what you get in my opinion.....

Excellent location and friendly staff. Booked executive suites, nice room and sitting area with sofa. Clean and quiet. Reliable free internet. Local tourbus has stop outside hotel. Just steps from rail station. Just a few blocks to main shopping area...all entirely walkable. Restaurants had very good menus, and dinner was excellent. Breakfast buffet also great with eggs cooked to order at buffet.
