My husband and I just returned from a six night stay at this hotel.
We had a standard room, which was very modern and new. The bathroom was contemporary and spacious. However, we had a little problem with water leaking out from the shower, which is almost level with the bathroom floor. This design seemed a little awkward. The hotel gave us a notice that we might experience some construction noise, but we never heard a sound. In fact, the hotel was extremely quiet.
As previous reviewers have said, the location of this hotel is very convenient. Is is across from the tram and from a metro stop. Once you figure out the public transit system, it is very easy to use. We purchased multipe day passes, and were able to use them on both systems. The area was very busy, but we felt that it was safe.
We had an excellent room rate, but felt that the hotel overcharged for everything else. At one point, I wasn't feeling well and wanted only to order an ala carte order of tea and toast in the morning. This was impossible to do in their dining room, and I was made to order their continental breakfast for $20.00. It was the most expensive two slices of bread that I have ever had! Likewise, their internet and wifi was quite costly. Follow the advice of previous reviewers, and go across the street to McDonalds for wifi and to an internet cafe to access your e-mail. There is a supermarket around the corner for some snacks and beverages. I know that these charges are typical of any city hotel, but it is a shame that this custom continues.
On a more positive note, the staff at the hotel was wonderful. At all times, everyone was helpful, professional and friendly. They spoke fluent English and made us feel very comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, would definitely stay here again.
