The Panari is close to the airport and probably a good choice for a very short stay. It does not have a welcoming reception desk and the employees do not look very motivated. The Coffee Shop downstairs has a more modern ambiance and the food there and in the main restaurant is good.
I loved the view from the large windows near the elevator. There is an (unmanned) sundeck which could be nice and a terrasse bar with Middle Eastern flair. Surprisingly most items on the menu card contain alcohol (tea + alcohol, coffee + alcohol, icecream + alcohol). I found that weird! There is an iceskating rink downstairs, but there is a poor welcome and you have to be there at a specific time to be admitted.
This hotel requires some renovation and a clearer positioning. It doesn't have much soul.
