8/10 Very good

Great rooftop bar and pool
Good basic hotel for tour groups . Lots of weird combo of beds in the rooms. Stayed trice and no double provided. Best thing is the rooftop bar and pool. Great views and cool breezes. Close to train and only a couple of stops to city centre

2/10 Poor

Awful experience. I stayed here to sleep a couple of hours before my flight. Checked in at 3am, requested a room with least amount of noise in the morning. I was told two different big groups were staying here on floor 1 and 2. Therefore I would be out on floor 4- where noise wouldn’t disturb me. By 8am there was loud banging, drilling and a lot of other loud noises that woke me up before my alarm even went off. I got no apologies, didn’t get a room switched and was not offered breakfast or anything else to compensate for my terrible experience. There was a kind gentleman at the end who offered me water and coffee. He said the hotel manager would get back to me- but I still haven’t heard back …. I want a refund.
