UPDATE: I believe the response below was from the same person who assumed that I am looking for a free stay(after they asked me what can we offer you). The assumption is unprofessional in all possible ways. The manager also canceled my booking reservation on booking and marked it as “no show” which supposed to be marked as “completed” so I don’t give them a bad review and request a refund for the inconvenience as promised. Note to the property: Replying to reviews does not make them any less valid:) If you want to enjoy the city & have a stress free stay this hotel is not recommended at all. As a working professional working in the tourism and hospitality industry i have never experienced such a rude managment the manager at the front desk today at 12:30 pm June 23rd 2023 was not helpful at all when I told her about my compliant for the loud room service cleaners clean the rooms next to me (shouting and moving things around loudly at 8 am) This resulted in ruining my whole day and not getting the sleep I needed. I asked her to make it up for me she offered to cancel my entire stay instead :) what a great solution. Rude managment. Noisy rooms. Bad cleaning service. You have to book the gym in advance. Unreliable staff (I didn’t trust them to clean my room from reading previous reviews) Maybe the best thing is the roof top which close as early as 9 PM.

Great hotel in a good area (5mins walk from the metro) and close to the tram line. Very easy to get anywhere in the city from here and it's a quiet location. Hotel staff were helpful and printed our plane tickets ready for the morning of our departure and kept our bags after we checked out so we could explore easier. We also borrowed an umbrella for the day. The view from the top of the hotel was brilliant and it has a nice bar on the rooftop. The only downside is the lack of privacy of the bathroom as there is no solid door, which can be awkward when going to the toilet, but we just went to the foyer if needed! The cutlery wasn't very clean, but the room was otherwise immaculate and a great price. Very modern and well decorated throughout the building.
