I read the "terrible reviews" but thought I would take a chance. When you read some of the terrible reviews you will know what I mean.
The Hotel is brand new and very modern but the design of the rooms is weird. Our room shared the same airspace as the bathroom; all those bad bathroom odours, steam etc can be experienced in the bedroom. Not to mentioned the 90dB hair dryer.
The staff were not particularly friendly and seem to be preoccupied playing with their Motorola radios and not really interested in helping you.
The food was not good. Cheeseburger was not medium rare and my risotto, well I'm not sure what it was.
Crown Metropol is a nice building, modern, great location etc. The view from the rooms are fantastic. It is not as good as the Grand Hyatt which I have already reviewed. I gave it a poor rating because their customer service and food was terrible.
