I stayed in this hotel for two nights in a single room.
*The room was nicely and modernly decorated. Single room had quite a big single bed, working table, flat screen tv, minibar, ironing board and iron, small "wardrobe" and bathroom with a shower.
*In the lobby there was a nice looking library/bar where you can read several magazines the hotel offers.
*Breakfast was ok, nothing special. The usual bread, bacon, eggs, cereals etc.
*The room was very hot even though I had set the air conditioning to coolest. I can image that during summers it can get _really_ hot.
*There were stains on the room walls, especially next to the bed. I didn't even want to image what those were but otherwise the room was clean.
*The pillow was very hard and lumpy. There were two pillow options available, but the other one was too soft and slack for my taste. But I think hotel pillows are never very good.
*You could _really_ hear very loud bangs when people let the doors of the nearby rooms slam shut behind them. In fact the sound of the doors closing was so loud that you think someone just entered your room, and that is not a nice feeling when you are just about to fall asleep and alone in your room.
The hotel also has a restaurant but I didn't try that during my stay. The hotel is located about 10 minute walk to the city center and you can find a smallish supermarket very near. I would not likely go back to this hotel as there are many other hotels to try nearby.
