I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks and although I did not encounter any major problems, the services provided are average and the hotel quite expensive.
1. Front Office
Front office staff were friendly and helpful. They attended to my colleagues and myself quickly and were prompt in providing solutions.
There were no problems regarding billing and settlement of bills was a smooth process.
There is a limited choice of food at the restaurant for dinner.
The breakfast cost was not included in the hotel rates and we were not informed of this at time of booking. We only learnt about this about check in. Although there is a wide range of food to choose from for breakfast, it is really expensive.
The room is large and clean. Bathroom is very spacious and clean. There is also a large desk in the room as well as a nice TV. Clean kettle was also available in the room. Good wifi connection in the room.
Noise insulation is bad and you can hear the traffic on the nearby highway as well as planes flying to and from an airport situated not too far away. I was awoken several nights due to noise in the corridor.
500MB free internet on a daily basis, which is more than enough for checking emails and browsing internet.
5. Other services
Not many equipment in the gym, but you there are some cardio equipment and weights. No sanitizers to wipe the equipment after use. There is a small pool, but it was too cold to try it out.
