Great room but the sauna and steam room are not good. The steam room stank of ammonia and the sauna door stuck and I had to rip it off to escape!!

    good option, good price, food needs work

    this is a great semi-budget hotel in the downtown area close to restaurants and shops. they had access to a gym (different building) and a spa on-site, which i was tempted to use, but never got there. three nights were all good. the water was always hot, though it came out yellow. we didn't have any problems though, and there was plenty of bottled water to use for brushing teeth, etc. the room had heating (it got cold at night!) and the bed was comfortable. the security was overly polite and the front desk was always staffed and helpful. we did not like the breakfast - we got up twice for early flights, and noticed everyone else in the airport who had packed breakfasts had normal things (boiled eggs, sandwiches, box juice, a banana, etc.) while we only had the option of taking takeaway from the six meals included in the breakfast rate. this included pancakes, which we ordered, and they packed the syrup in tin foil! it spilled everywhere and ruined the rest of the food. we got muesli with no milk or yogurt - just plain, uncooked oats. so bizarre. other than that, the place worked out well for us.
