I wanted to tick a rating somewhere between Average and Very Good. There is a lot to like about this hotel: its ultra modern design, good gym, large rooms, WiFi included, and friendly, efficient and helpful reception staff. But some things let it down: despite the room size there is no desk or flat surface to use a laptop, there is only one spare power point in the room, the toiletries are basic - no tissues provided, the breakfast is also basic with waiting staff hard to find.
That said I has a pleasant five nights here. I booked with hotels.com and got a bargain I think, with breakfast included. The area is a bit of a way from the tourist spots but still walking distance to most things and cabs are very inexpensive.
The soccer theme is well done even if you are not a fan. I liked the footballer murals on the room doors even though I have no idea who they were. If you get a good price and enjoy walking, it's a good place to stay.
