Excellent inner city location was perfect for us. Very well designed and modern room. The only negative for us was lack of air conditioning and fresh air flow. It became very stuffy very quickly and the small electric fan did not help much.

hot and stuffy

Pros: it was clean and convenient.
Cons: proper air conditioning.
The hotel was fine except that our window opened onto an internal courtyard or something, with no outside air. It was very hot and stuffy and the air conditioning unit apparently isn't an aircon it just cools the air, but it didn't have any effect at all so the room was unbearably hot. Additionally, one night we were kept awake until midnight because someone had their TV blaring in another room and it echoed all around this open space. Although the window open didn't really cool the room it was better than having it closed, but then with it open we had the noise to deal with.
