This hotel looked really impressive from the website and we got a great deal so choosing this place was not hard, especially given the handy location. However, many aspects of our stay were disappointing. When we arrived, we had to wait quite a while to be seen to at the reception to check in. When we got our room cards, we headed up to our first floor courtyard room and along the corridor was a putrid smell of sick which had been masked by some kind of cleaning product. This remained for the duration of our stay.
Our room was spacious and was in a triple configuration. There were enough seats and plenty of storage space. The beds were comfortable, the air conditioning was good and the room was quiet. A big issue was the bathroom, which had a window directly from the room to the shower, only maybe two thirds frosted! It was then necessary to run the shower to steam up the rest of the window for normal privacy as we were a group of friends. Yet the shower was good and had a rain setting and a normal shower head.
Breakfast was rather unusual, served in a dining room which is really too small for the size of the hotel. The selection was quite good but there wasn't really much of anything. The meats and cheeses were really nice, as were the breads. The cooked options tended to be luke-warm. The coffee was good but the juices were not proper fruit juices: instead they were some kind of diluted type. It was difficult to find a table and the breakfast room could be loud as some guests did not have a volume control.
When we were looking to check out, we had to wait an eternity again at the reception and the concierge persisted to push past us. We certainly had mixed feelings about the hotel but enjoyed our stay in it overall.
