I stayed here last night; I arrived late - so can't comment on location etc. What I can comment on is the room (3121) - average, cold and noisy (but clean, from what I can see).
When I say cold - it's only September and it was freezing in here when I arrived - so much so I thought the window was open. So I cranked up the air con to 25 degrees, and went to get a quick meal in the bar, expecting to come back to a toasty room. No change upon my return, so I cranked it up to 28 degrees and called reception. I explained the room was very cold and asked for a heater - moments later, a girl arrived with a blanket (?) and I explained the problem again. She told me that even though there are individual air con units in each room, they are controlled centrally. This makes no sense and I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel like it. Eventually they did give me a heater, which resolved the problem, but very poor for €155 per night.
Also, no full length mirror in the room - come on, this is a basic. On a positive note, the breakfast was good.
One other thing - this hotel has a very quirky layout - lots of different floors, some numbered, some named.
