Very late with this review. Second hotel in our tour. First impressions, in heart of the city but no noise once the windows were shut, I was on the 18th floor I think. Spacious, clean room with all normal amenties, firm bed and pillows and no spare quilt to use to lay over the bed to ease the firmness but I managed to sleep on it but not comfortable for me. English TV news channel. Toiletries, green tea, kettle, no safe in this hotel, you have to speak with receptionist for a safety locker. Breakfast first day was enjoyable the food was of a better quality and more tasty in this hotel and different options, plus a chef cooking eggs fresh, however you wanted them, omelettes, fried eggs etc. Second day breakfast was cold, somone had left the lids open on all the hot food the burner underneath was a waste of time as all the heat was escaping. I couldn't eat it, I had to have toast which was also very difficult as the butter and bread had been taken straight out of the freezer and was still frozen so this task took a lot longer to do. The waiting staff at breakfast were over zealous when it came to clearing the table the minute you've moved out of your chair, so if you were going to fetch another item to eat, you'd come back and your cutlery, coffee and anything else you had left were gone, never to be seen again. Which is a bit frustrating as you then have to ask to get cutlery, coffee etc back in place to continue enjoying your breakfast. Then your food was getting cold whilst your waiting for replacement cutlery but at least they weren't slow and they were very pleasant and always smiling. You soon learned to let the staff know you were coming back to the table or ask someone near you to guard your cuppa for you.
Lots of local shops outside the hotel, don't about not speaking english, they produce the faithful calculater to let you know how much the item you've got costs. They manage to do business no matter what language you speak brought some tasty fruit from one local shop.
All in all a satifactory hotel but not the most comfortable stay for me and breakfast was cold on our second morning.
