No problems

Everything was fine except you need to fix the problem about calling the number for reservations after hours. I was kept waiting and told on check in that the number doesn't work after hours .

A comfortable stay

A very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The hotel is well appointed and is close to public transport. There are a lot of small eateries and restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel. Staff were welcoming and helpful.

Satisfactory experience

Room was clean. Check in and check out were polite and efficient. I like the hotel's drive to promote "going green" although like most hotels there doesn't seem to be any recycling. My only criticism is the gym: the multipurpose ... more
