On a bus tour and it shows. Looked like great location next to the river ....but...... Ha was its only great point. That and is newly upgraded foyer. Promise of wifi but let dropping out even in the foyer computers. Beds were close to our worst euoropean experience and 43 others thought so too. Back breaking but at least with dreadful pillows to match.
Breakfast poorly received, cold each day, self service coffee ( worse than airline quality).
Security, well jus wander up to reception and ask for an extra key, just handed over. Find your bags left outside your room. Very poor. Don't open your windows for the wave of mosquitoes but then again it had a lovely reception area.
Drinks at the ground floor bar fair price but you certainly wouldn't eat here after the breakfast experience.
Long walk, but worth it to some good local restaurants. 4/10
