    The rooms are very outdated and have seen better days. Door etc have scratch marks. Big room (nice size) with two double beds but only one place for one suitcase to put down. The second suitcase has to be put down on the floor. The breakfast room has the character of a train station. Good European bred but the poor choice of cheap cold meat is not for the European taste at all. But the fruits and the omelets have been really good. It's not what you expect of a 4 stars hotel. Unfortunately there is not much choice when you have to stay at the airport for 1 night.

    Convenient complementary shuttle to the terminal. Kind staff.

    Limited wifi (we are reaching 2020 guys....!), ageing rooms that need refurbishing. Give up on the breakfast if you're flying early. Long checkin and checkout.

    Great breakfast. Staff helpful and complimentary bottle of wine for the honeymoon was a great touch!

    Needs better lighting in the rooms and more water available

    Service was great,

    The shower leaked a bit and we had some issue with the electrical plugs but the staff were on top off it as soon as we told them about it. The staff were very friendly and accomodating . The location was perfect and we would definitely use this hotel for a stopover again Breakfast was good and I was spoilt for choice
