First impressions are very good, the reception area and bar/restaurant have recently been refurbished and are very nice.
The reception staff are very friendly and helpful.
Then you take the lift, on this occasion to the 5th floor - room 519.
What a disappointment - the room looks like something left over from the eighties, the carpet was worn and not vacuumed as it should have been - there were crumbs on the floor. The furniture was dusty - I got the feeling that this room hadn't been used in a while.
The bed had no bedskirt and the base of the bed was stained. The decor was tired, the furniture was old, the curtains were faded.
There was no in-room safe, no iron or ironing board - things I just take for granted when I choose to stay at a Crowne Plaza.
on the positive side the bed linen was of a very good quality.
I am so glad that I had only checked in for one night.
Parking is expensive at €15.00 per night - you can park across the street for free.
