Hotel in a great place. Both main station (that would bring you in from the airport - about a half hour train journey) and metro on hand and great connections to the centre. Very nice hotel. Very welcoming reception staff and they were happy to check us in early which was brilliant.
Lounge bar open till 1pm - reasonable. Good for a drink before going out or coming back from a night out. Did not experience the restaurant on the top floor as we wanted to have dinner in the centre, on the harbour and experience the rest of the city, so cannot comment on that.
Wifi is free but only for 30mins of your whole stay. Which was disappointing, really this should be free for staying guests.
Also the spa €6 per person per day if you want to experience the spa. Really this should be free for staying guests and you should only pay for any treatments you may have.
Television - although it says satalite tv it only had 3 English speaking channels which were all American news channels.
Rooms were clean and tidy. Only issue was we got a room on the fourth floor, which was a little noisy and overlooked the car park but other than that good.
Just to add we only wanted somewhere to stay. We didn't pay for breakfast because the bull ring arena (local shopping centre) had lovely coffee shops to grab a pastry in the morning. Only a 5 min walk around the corner.
And if you are not after fancy and to rest your head. Wanting to be close to centre but not pay a fortune then brilliant hotel. Would definitely stay again.
