This is a modern, classy city-centre hotel with service to match its excellent facilities.
Welcome and check-in are warm and efficient: quick and hassle-free with just the right personal touch. With that indefinable combination of smiles and eye-contact, the guest is actually made to feel welcome.
A battery of super-fast, key-controlled lifts whisk one to the right floor in seconds. A really brilliant aspect of overall design is the escalator system for conference / meeting delegates to access their facility from the ground floor. This obviates the peak-time "elevator-clug" which is all too common in business hotels.
Bedrooms are spacious and quiet with an "office area!. Free wi-fi. Comfortable in every respect and quiet too. Bathroom well laid out with de luxe toiletries.
Tempted by a flier in the bedroom for a Mediterranean Buffet available in the restaurant, we signed up. It was really excellent with a huge range of the best of the Med., all washed down with unlimited quantities of wines from the region. Unsurprisingly, the red was a tempranillo which was distinctly "moreish". I doubt that the green-lipped mussels had ever savoured the waters of the Med but were none the worse for that. The Camembert and Pont l'Eveque cheeses were certainly authentic and the gazpacho, served in taster-glasses, could have been from El Bulli! It was amazing value at 690,00 Dong, or about £18.50 per person - that's with unlimited wine!
Breakfast buffet was equally good, with attentive staff impeccably dressed in traditional uniforms making the experience excellent rather than simply good.
Surprise, surprise: check-out was instantaneous, bags appeared in a flash and we were bid fond farewells.
Well done Melia. High expectations delivered .................. and some more.
