I was pretty impressed with this hotel. My standard room was large and the bed very comfortable. Free wi-fi in the room, ironing board, plenty of tea/coffee/complementary water etc. was handy. They extended my check out until 6 p.m. with no quibble. Food was good and not overly expensive and atmosphere was pretty convivial especially on nights when there was buffet service. Little coffee shop on the ground floor a good option for snacks if you've over-indulged on the buffet breakfast. Gym is well equipped with modern gear including equipment you don't always find, e.g. two Concept 2 rowing machines - important for some of us! Pool area is pleasant (especially if you can block out the traffic from the nearby flyover) with very comfortable loungers - wish I could have taken one home with me. Hotel is near a major traffic intersection so there can be a lot of road noise but rooms are well insulated so I was much less bothered than when staying at the Intercontinental.
I can see what people say about the service. Language may be an issue - my experience was that it helped to pitch up at Reception and do things face to face as difficult to communicate over the phone - then no problems. Don't expect staff to anticipate your every need and come running. Price was half that at the Intercontinental and I think good value for money. If you can get a corporate rate at the Grand Hyatt, that is probably a pretty great option though.
