Check-in was surprisingly quick and we were even allowed to go up to our room several hours earlier than we had anticipated for no extra charge, which was fab. The room itself was, all in all, pretty good and clean. The shower was very powerful—just what you want on a morning—but

Dear DizzyDonna84, Thank you very much for taking the time to provide the feedback in regards of your stay with us. Our Hotel is in the middle of the City centre and that makes it easy reachable from the Airport as the bus stops right on our doorstep. Also, all of the shopping and night life areas are within walking distance from the Hotel and that makes us the perfect base to explore what our fair city has to offer. We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed in your stay in the Hotel and that you found our staff to be welcoming and helpful. Thank you once again and I hope to see you soon staying with us.

hi a few questions ... Firstly how far is this hotel from airport? Is the hotel in a good location ? Is the breakfast buffet and is it cooked?/ Thank you!
The hotel is about 30 to 45 minutes away from airport, depending on traffic. Cabs can be easily located outside hotel and/or around the corner. I found the location great., a few minutes away from the bridge and all the shops but for me, being away from the hustle and bustle meant a good deal. There is a sports bar right next door to the hotel and it was the world cup but no noise filtered through during the week. Breakfast buttet is complete with all items you wanted and also beverages.
