I stayed at this hotel in August 2013 for 3 nights on business. When I arrived at the hotel around lunch time there was a very long queue at the reception area. It took about 10 minutes to be served.
Once checked in I proceeded to the lifts. The first lift you come across is only for the residential part of the hotel. The next couple of lifts are for hotel guests. Whilst this is easy to work with at ground level, I found it confusing on my floor of the hotel. ie if you push the down arrow, then the lift reserved for residents may come. Once inside the lift the floor buttons are different on each side of the lift. At one stage I got into a lift but the floor I wanted to go to did not have a button so i go out. Later I realised that there were different buttons on each side of the lift.
The room was good, however the glass door to the wardrobe had been smashed and had not been replaced.
I had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs. I just had the continental breakfast and it was fine. Service upon arrival at the restaurant was slow.
Check-out was fairly efficient.
In short, the hotel was a good hotel and I may choose to stay there again.
