                      The hotel rates zero in respect of facilities there's no pool, spa or any other recreational facilities. There's a gym but who cares about a gym when on holidays I was looking to extend once I got there but decided against it. The hotel is cheap eg. The room came with cheap slippers but even after you use them you got to leave them behind. The wash basin is made for tiny elves or for children but not for adults. I've stayed in 3 star hotels which are better than this hotel. The restaurants downstairs were closed and unless you fancy macdonalds or subway you have to travel far for food.

                      Very close to the city / friendly staff /

                      The trams were very noisy. Also the lift!!

                      A pleasant place to stay and a great bar!

                      The smell of my room, it smelt like body odour.

                      Just the lovely ambiance and the style of the rooms. Restaurant is great.

                      Would have liked to be guaranteed a valet car park (which we did get) but I understand the reasons for not being able to gaurantee in advance.

                      No pool. I was given a two level room for an adult and two small children. A one level room would have been much easier for me as I spent a lot of time running up and down stairs.

                      Bad hotel. I have to live in another hotel on the first day because of the staff's carelessness. The amenity sucks. It's not a real 5-star hotel. I'll never live in this hotel any more.
