    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    I liked that the hotel is well located. We were able to walk to many places and the metro was right next to us. I liked the busy ambiance around us with many restaurants and it was beautiful all light up at night. The only thing that I didn't like was that the hotel was under renovation while we were there. We had been advised that renovations would be going on but that the pool would still be accessible. Unfortunately, when we got there the pool was not accessible as we had been told.

    Fantastic breakfasts and great room quality

    Room was excellent, loved the little touches in exec room such as drinks in refrigerator and nespresso machine. Only issue was a lack of storage, 6 hangers and no drawers doesn’t cut it for a family, even a set of coat hooks would help. Breakfast was fantastic! They laid on a balloon modeller and face painter on Saturday and Sunday which our daughter loved. They are undergoing renovations which we knew when we booked, however we were perfectly happy that we got great value and perfectly positioned accommodation. We were out all day anyway. Room quality, location and breakfast were our priorities and hotel was perfect for this. I did also go to the gym which was fine for my purpose. I would love to go back when the renovations are completed!

    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The location of the hotel is good as there lots of food options, Taxi stand and metro transportation are both really close. The biggest disappointment would be the renovations being done throughout the main lobby of the hotel. This was not mentioned anywhere during time of booking. My 4 year old son has asthma. We had to take precautions anytime we went in and out the main lobby so he wouldn’t breathe in too much dust. The hotel room was clean and modern but small. We had to call the front desk one afternoon because housekeeping didn’t clean up our room. Taxis went on strike on our final day and the staff wasn’t too helpful with alternative options. I wouldn’t stay here again but maybe without the renovations we would’ve had a better experience. Enjoy your trip!
