Though most of the reviews were favourable there were few negative ones I was worried about and wasn't sure if I had made the right choice as this wasn't my first choice for hotel. Well, both myself and my companion were impressed with the space, cleanliness, and modern décor. For European standards, I would say the room size was spacious enough. Big closet space, mini bar, safe and coffee maker, desk and sofa chair. Nice TV. Very clean bathroom, comfy bed. We were on the 21st floor which gave us a very nice view till we saw the view of rooftops and houses. The other side of the hotel has a much prettier view of the Bridges and Aqueducts.
Oh yes, the patio was beautiful. Perfect to relax there on a nice day with a drink. Again a big plus for its 24 hour business centre and complimentary internet access. The bar and lounge looked nice too. There are doormen and concierge on the wait and ready to help with luggage so be prepared to tip. Morning calls in hotels are usually automated. With this hotel we found the automated call was soon followed by a person calling.
Though it's not in the city centre, there's a Metro across the street which made it very convenient to travel downtown, about 20 or 25 mins. For a 6 euro day pass you can use the Metro, trams too. If you want a cheaper breakfast, there're a few cafes round the corner. Could get a decent breakfast for about 2-3 euros if you're a small eater. The cafes are located to the right of the hotel as you exit.
Those who are familiar with El Cote Ingles stores, there's one in the area. But not as close as I was given to think. It's walkable distance though. Our leisurely walk took us about 20 to 25 mins to get there.
Service at hotel, I would say, was good. Also, they're very prompt in responding to emails and also follows up after the stay. If you don't mind not being in the city centre, this would be a nice place to stay.
