I will start off with the good stuff. The location of this hotel is great. We were a 25 min bus ride from the airport which stopped very close by to the hotel, its also located near the museums and some great food places, the bathroom does have Dove body wash and shampoo, staff are friendly enough and the breakfast was pretty good.
Bad side. The room was tiny which we could deal with if it wasn't located below ground level (-1). We can quite clearly hear the foot steps of the people above us. This also means that the free WiFi has bad reception and goes incredibly slow. The shower has such low water pressure even though it looks like it has a great shower head. You can't even adjust the head or the water slows to a trickle. The beds are two singles pushed together which in other hotels wasnt a problem, however the matresses have no real cushion and you can feel the springs. So your always tossing to get comfy and the beds slip apart. We paid a reasonable amount for the room so was quite surprised. We have stayed in other Best Western Hotels and we very happy. In my opinion if a room has a comfy bed and great shower you can pretty much deal with anything else that's not what you expected.
