Stayed here for one night, mostly because it has the big advantage of being walking distance from the airport.
It was clean, convenient, and had reasonable wifi (which in theory you must pay for, but they waived the fee for me).
However, it was in almost all other ways completely uninspiring. The catering is almost non-existent, though my cheese sandwich *was* tasty... but I was ravenous. And it had no other character.
Overall, I might have given it three stars, as being basically average, but the friendliness and helpfulness of the chap behind the reception desk - the only member of staff I ever encountered - earned them an extra point!
So it's just fine, if you want a bed to sleep in without the need from a taxi to or from the airport. I have no complaints, and would stay there again, but from a need for somewhere functional more than from a choice of an interesting location.
I suppose, to be fair, affordable airport hotels are normally abysmal, and this certainly wasn't that! So it probably deserves the fourth star!
