The hotel room is quite small , it has no cupboards, drawers etc so you have to live out of your suitcase. The first 2 days there was no hot water but that was rectified eventually. The beds were comfortable, the air conditioning worked well and the tv was a good size.
I paid for breakfasts when i made the bookings so ate at the restaurant downstairs. The food was good but I was disapointed that breakfast could only be had between7 and 10 even though the restaurant offered all day breakfasts. This caused me to have to order 3 breakfasts for 2 people twice to use up the vouichers.
Front desk staff were polite and efficient. My safe ran out of power at one stage. I couldnt leave my room until maintenance turned up. Front desk was able to open the safe for me but i couldnt lock it again so i couldnt leave. I had to wait for maintenance which didnt take too long but did force me to change plans.
Overall the stay was very good, I would recommend you check the tune website for a sale before booking. I am planning another stay soon but at the regular price this hotel is far too expensive for what is on offer considering you have to pay more for any extras like towels etc.
