I feel bad rating this place as 'average' but equally I couldn't rate it was 'very good' either. Its inbetween.
Firstly, the location, very well connected to the excellent and easy to navigate metro. Otherwise its a bit boring. Its not in the thick of things and its a bit grey but its not far away and the market is nearby.
The lobby is pleasant, American feel and the reception staff were friendly. Because of status we asked about a room upgrade but this wasn't available for several hours so we took a standard room. Annoying but at least the internet was still free. The room itself was tired and pretty far away from the lifts. No view and the privacy curtains were hanging off their rails, not a great look. Old style TV and small bathroom just made the place feel like it needs a really good refresh. Naff pictures and floral curtains need to be binned immediately.
What saves this old dear from a proper negative review is the truly great breakfast. A huge selection of international breakfast stuffs made it a great experience. It was included in the rate we got and was very much worth it.
I personally think if you get a cheap rate then you won't be disappointed but I reckon there's nicer out there.
