I was on a tour which stayed at this hotel. The hotel was not in the central area and there were few restaurants nearby. The elevators were inadequate, there were four and they could each hold six people if they were packed like sardines. They were also slow arriving.
When I stayed at the hotel at the beginning of my trip there were three coach parties, about 150 people and the hotel could not cope with so many people for the buffet breakfast. It was hard to find a seat for breakfast, there wasn't much choice, the hot food went quickly and it wasn't replenished promptly.
The hotel room was adequate but I liked the bathroom which had a heated towel rail.
The group stayed at this hotel on the last night of the tour and the buffet breakfast was served in a larger restaurant with more choice and the hot food was replenished more quickly.
It was almost impossible to use the WiFi.
