We got a great rate for a one night stay through Tripadvisor, specially compared to other airpot hotels.
The hotel is new, so new in fact that the GPS would not locate it. We were lucky enough to find their shuttle and follow it to the hotel. We got there 10 min before check in, and they said if we checked in we would be charged another 20 EUR. What? It didn't make sense, but I guess rules are rules, so we just waited... The hotel has a different, more modern feeling, no frills, no non-sense. Their PAN AM theme through out is nostalgic but also hip.
We got two rooms for our family of four, adjacent but not connected. It worked well for us because our kids are older, we enjoyed it as much as they did. We were at a high floor and the windows do open wide, be warned if you have little ones with you. From our room the view of the city was beautiful at night!
The room was very nice, modern, in simple lines with dark painted walls, wooden floors, and hanging lights. Hanging areas by the door/bathroom door made it easier to quickly access coats, purses, etc. The bed was very comfortable, and we had plenty of space, including a sofa. Very nice bathroom as well.
At night we went down to the lobby bar which was very busy, something we don't see at many hotels. The crowd seemed to be a mix of younger group of friends, and businessmen. The atmosphere was very relaxed, most people walking around, using the pool table, ordering food, enjoying their drinks. We had a good time, good service, but terrible food. I believe it all goes from a freezer to a microwave, but for what they charge they should be ashamed of it. We did step into the communal kitchen looking for ice cubes( didn't find it there), and though the idea was brilliant! There was also a washer and dryer, which would be very handy for many.
They offer a shuttle to the terminal, but you have to sign up for it, and pay 3 EUR / person. The van carries 8, if you're worried sign up in advance to save your spot.
Overall our stay was very nice... until the end. As we were leaving our room I dropped papers on the floor, and while picking them up I came across the most discussing hair and dust ball right under my bed! When I walked barefoot the night before the floors felt strange, I had not idea they were just dirty! Yuck! The young woman that checked us out was less than interested on my comments. I only wish I had taken a picture of what was "hiding" in the nice looking room.
