I stay here often on business, although not by choice as my employer books my accommodation. The rooms are a very good standard, very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast buffet is excellent, as is the dinner buffet, and the gym has everything I need. Room service is adequate and they actually speak English and are able to take your order. The front desk staff and restaurant staff also have a good level of English speaking skills.
There are only a few small negatives as far as I am concerned - 1) The water temperature keeps going hot and cold in the shower, and this is not just an isolated occurrence, it happens every time I stay there and in different rooms. 2) The rooms get a bit stuffy and hot at night time, I think they must turn the air conditioning off at night. 3) The location is not great, you'll probably need to take a taxi if you want to go anywahere, although there are many good local eateries nearby. 4) I get woken up often by noisy military aeroplanes, there must be an airforce base nearby.
Overall I would not hesitate to stay here again and would have rated it 5 stars if not for the minor points above.
