Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Good: location; modern, clean rooms and environment. Bad: no hot water first thing in the morning, necessitating my using my office shower facilities; rock hard bed that gave me shoulder pains (being a side-sleeper); broken fixtures in the bathroom (inc. toilet seat); no way to contact reception to complain of hot water and poor response to the issue when reported on checking out.
