Taxi from the airport to the hotel in no time at all.
On entering the hotel, I could see this was a busy hotel. However, the service at the reception was great. They gave us information on what was around the area with no prompting.
Our room was at the front of the hotel and facing the fountain.
As we were there in February, they had a fountain show when it got dark. There was also a massive celebration which was well organised and officially closed the road. It was great watching this with a glass of red!
The sightseeing bus runs from across the roundabout. The standard stuff.
I would stay in this hotel again.
The food in the restaurant was amazing, but not cheap.
There is also a basic restaurant there and the breakfast area has a big seating area with plenty of choice. Well organised.
