We stayed here for 3 nights, getting a really good deal at £225 including breakfast. Following advice on the forum, on check in we paid another 15 Euros per night to upgrade to a room on the 11th floor with great views of the city. The room was clean, great power shower and I have never known such comfortable pillows. Some have said the beds were uncomfortable but we had no problem.
We didn't expect much in the way of breakfast for the price but we were pleasantly surprised. Lots of choice - enough of everything for all tastes and regularly replenished. OK, the breakfast staff were a bit surly, but professional and in any case I don't like too much over the top service first thing in the morning. All of the other staff were helpful and seemed genuinely happy to help with our queries. My daughter had a special birthday cake at breakfast from the staff and then another from the front of house staff at teatime sent up to our room.
The hotel is a bit out of the city but this caused us no problems. Metro and main station is just over the road and taxis by the bucket load at the front door,
All in all, a great hotel for the money and I would certainly recommend it - especially if you get the deal we did (with VivaStay)
