Rooms are spacious and generally clean, although there were some small dried spots of blood on 2 of the pillows. Not too big of a problem as the comfortable beds (if you like soft) had 4 pillows to choose from. Bathroom was also clean, but the shower was very iffy: low pressue meant the water just dribbled out of the rain shower head and the showers have shower curtains :(
The (omnipresent) firedoors are very noisy, as is the entire hotel: bring earplugs!
The food in the lunch buffet was far from high cuisine and frankly not very good: dry fish or greasy meat.
The floor, covered in carpet with a very wide variety of stains throughout the hotel, is extremely creaky, which is very annoying when you're in a meeting with presentations and people walk through the room, creaking away.
However, it's relatively inexpensive, wifi's good, staff is okay and the beds are comfy.
