Imagine walking what seems like miles down a curved corridor before you get to your room. I have booked it through a travel site and have been assured that my request for a smoking room has been passed along. The receptionist informs me that rooms are non-smoking but that I can smoke in the balcony attached to the room, which is fine with me. The room is well appointed if a 1970s disco-ish feel is what you favour. The balcony, which hasn't been cleaned very well, overlooks a giant-sized atrium. You also realise that using it to smoke brings you into view of every guest in the hotel and every visitor to the restaurant in the atrium, which can be a little disconcerting. Service is abominably erratic and it seems to take hours and a couple of reminders before something as basic as a match box is delivered. The bathroom is well fitted, although the lighting could be improved. Overall this has been a disappointing stay.
