I was at this hotel with colleagues for several days for a training. The facilities, rooms and service were good. The conference room with interpreter boot and simultaneous translation head sets also worked more or less flawlessly. The room was clean and spacious, the bed comfortable, and the bathroom was spotless with bathtub (I had an average room, not a suite). The light in the room was quite dim and it could've been useful to have a brighter light too when wanting to work in there. I tried both the massage and swimming pool on the room, and both were satisfactory. The breakfast in the lobby restaurant was plentiful.
Although I have nothing to complain about , I still can't give it top mark. It lacked the extra charm or character which would have made it stand out. The pan-flute cliché music played in the lobby and in the hallways constantly got on my nerves after two days, and the techno played in the restaurant at breakfast seemed very out of place.
Big plus for the wi-fi which worked flawlessly.
