2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Initially it seems like a really smart hotel - it is clean and trendy however its the basics that are wrong - in my room there was no desk space and no side cabinets there was nowhere to put anything. The Window is not actually a window it opens to a very narrow gap in the buildings its gets no light at all. The wifi is awful and unusable. And there was building work happening - drilling from 8am until 5 every day. I actually left the hotel stressed.

Great hotel in a very central part of the city. Staff was friendly and helpful. Clean, cozy rooms with lots of amenities. The pool area and entire hotel is lovely as well. Stayed here twice.
