I had a room on 14th floor, therefore the view was great! Breakfast was great and very diversified.

1. I was expecting to have slippers available in the room and an iron for my clothes. 2. It would have been great to have a designated area for smoking inside the hotel.

Feels like sleeping in the office - but without WLAN. WLAN could only be used for free in lobby, not even in restaurant.

The address of the hotel listed is not a road that can be used with a GPS. I had to call the hotel to give me the main road which the hotel road leads from. As a user of many elecrtical items eg laptop chargers etc. there was only 1 spare socket to plug them into. I had to unplug some of the lights in order to recharge them. There was no wireless internet available in the rooms. At least there was a cable, and was charged for the pleasure.
