Stayed here for one night. It’s a business style hotel situated on a busy six lane ring road. The views from the front facing windows are uninspiring and, when the windows are open, the traffic noise can be loud (drowning out the TV). Having said that, with the windows closed the traffic noise is virtually unnoticeable.
The room I stayed in was a decent size with a nice bathroom and a hot, powerful shower. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided. A flat screen TV was on the wall, with the added advantage of being able to switch to native language for some films and programmes. There is a “Pillow Menu” in operation at this hotel meaning that you can pick and choose a selection of pillows to help you get as comfortable as possible.
Wi-Fi connection details are given to you at check in and I found the free coverage and speed to be great in the main reception, bedroom and bar areas.
The bar and restaurant area is nicely laid out and, whilst some of the drinks were expensive (€5 for a 33cl bottle of beer), it was relaxing enough. Drinks were served with a small selection of crisps and I was also offered some small taster bites with each drink I ordered. I assume that happens to everyone but as I was the only one in the bar at the time I couldn’t say for sure.
The food in the restaurant was very good quality and, to be fair, good value for money. I had the pasta with tomato and basil followed by the beef medallions with parmesan and artichokes – a brand new experience for me and one I would readily repeat.
The staff I encountered at the main reception - for check in and for check out – and the bar staff were all polite and attentive and they were all perfectly capable of understanding me using English (always a bonus for those of us that are linguistically challenged).
There is a car park to the rear although it didn’t strike me as being particularly large for the size of hotel. This location has a wellbeing area (Spa, Massage and Sauna) and guests are welcome to use this facility.
So, in summary, the hotel was great inside but in a less than appealing location and the food was definitely worth staying in for. Breakfast was offered to me for €10 at check in with the advice that if I decided to wait until the morning to decide it would cost €15. I didn’t partake so cannot comment on it.
If I was in the area, again, I would definitely consider staying here. less
