Stayed here for one night in Oct, 2012. It was a perfectly good place. The room was very slightly run down but had all the amenities I needed. The bed was comfortable. There were light blocking curtains. There was no wifi but there was an ethernet cable to connect to, so no problem. The staff brought up an electrical adapter for me quite quickly and refused a tip! The gym was great- I was able to have an excellent workout on bike and treadmill. Even though I didn't use it, the pool looked good (slightly curved so not ideal for swimming laps but very useable). I thought the breakfast buffet was also quite good, with many options for all palettes.
The hotel is about a five minute walk from a mall that has restaurants and two supermarkets.
The facet that stands out to me from this hotel was the outstanding service provided by all the staff that I interacted with. I would gladly return.
