The upgraded renovated junior suite felt a bit like a waste of money. It wasn't very clean at all, it had one small window that looked onto the corner of the building so you could see no actual sky so it felt like a cave. And the towel bar was falling off, the tap dripped into a rusty tub and a handle came off in my hand, so renovated did not feel like an accurate description.

My review might be a bit biased as I only stayed there for one night. Overall, hotel is nice and central - my only comment is room layout was very odd. The bed was right by the door, which when opening in the morning, anybody passing by the hallway can see who’s sleeping in bed. Coffee in the room was rubbish - hoped a hotel at this caliber could afford to have a Nespresso machine or similar - but on the bright side there’s a Starbucks in the lobby which was nice. Other than that, everything was perfect, and staff / service was great as well.
