Stayed here on business for a couple of nights and it was a great experience.
The checkin process was smooth and efficient, and I got upgraded to a Deluxe room which was huge, especially for 1 person. The room had a full separate seating area with a work desk and then a corridor leading to the big bedroom. The bedroom was well lit and very comfortable, as was the lounge area, but I felt that I could really have used more light there.
All the needed amenities were provided, and the Nespresso was an added bonus.
The one thing I really appreciated in the rooms was the abundance of wall sockets to charge and plug into. Also, in this same category - the shower was awesome. Great pressure and temperature.
The free WiFi in the rooms was fast, but it often dropped out. Only real complaint.
The breakfast was delicious and interesting - in the sense that there were many unusual items that I wouldn't associate with breakfast. But the food tasted good, and the service was impeccable :)
The location is also great - you're a 10minute walk to the Corniche which has a ton of dining options or just a chance to walk around.
Would recommend to anyone in the area looking for a great place in a central location.
