Stayed here for a long weekend and the hotel is small but very modern and stylish. Friendly staff, free wifi and we were able to print off our boarding passes for no extra charge. The room is a good size for two people and the beds very comfy. Great use of storage space as well with cupboards built in to the wall. The shower was powerful but often slipped down as it came loose a couple of times.
The room was kept clean. Breakfast was OK but only served until 10am even on the weekends. The breakfast waiters started clearing up around us before 10am and switched the lights off while people were still eating! I imagined if you stayed here for longer the breakfast selection could get repetitive.
All in all a very good stay, nice and central to walk places and the reception staff were lovely.
One thing to watch out for was reception booked a taxi to take us up to the Museum of Fine Art. The cost was only about 1600 ft and the journey took under ten minutes. We hailed a taxi to take us back to the hotel so we could catch the airport transfer for our flight home. The driver took us a really long way back and the meter ticked up to nearly 5000 ft (About £15 in a very cheap city). We reasoned with the taxi driver and only paid him 3000 ft, which at about £9 is still a healthy tip. As we hailed it from a touristy area he was clearly trying to scam us, and was only when we questioned him he backed down. It's a shame when cities take advantage of tourists, especially when they benefit from tourism year round.
I'd recommend getting the airport transfer shuttle bus when you arrive. It's a good service, convenient and doesn't cost much for a 30 minute journey to the city centre.
