How any hotel does not check to see if the curtains close properly to keep out the light astonishes me. Wrong fittings. Request for a fix didn’t work. Africa for you. My wife didn’t like the glass wall to bathroom as no privacy. Breakfast coffee not to our liking. Wonderful location for travelers needing to transit airport. If our minor irritations don’t worry you it’s a good newish hotel to stay in
