This is a great hotel if you have to catch a flight the next day. I had to catch a flight at 7AM on a Sunday, I left the hotel at 6AM and they already had the breakfast ready for us.The normal time on weekends is 7AM.There is one good restaurant nearby but it is somewhat costly in the $$$ range.There was no hot water at 4 AM.I called the front desk manager , he came up right away and took care of the issue.Very helpful staff and I would definitely stay here again.
Now the But... part.
There are free shuttle busses from the airport to the hotel.I took a bus that said`Hampton Inn & Holiday Inn Express`.The driver dropped a couple at the Hampton Inn and told me that `I told you that this bus does not go to Holiday Inn as they have their own bus`. He had not told me anything. When I asked him as to what do I do now- he said that as a favor he will drop me off.He just drove me to the very next building which was the Holiday Inn express. I paid him 5 Euros for his `Favor`.
After entering the hotel the front desk person told me that he was supposed to have dropped me at the Holiday Inn , as he IS the dedicated driver .Apparently the driver knew how to extract money from helpless hotel guests.
My date of arrival at the hotel was November 30,2013 in the afternoon - in case the hotel staff wants to investigate this driver.If contacted I will be happy to provide a description of the driver.
