    The accommodation and furnishing were nothing like what was on the website. It was a 2 level apartment with steep stairs, which were an inconvenience for 2 of the guests. From the website it appeared to be on the one floor/level. One room was that small you could not open the cupboards without moving a bed, and the 2 single beds were small also. Luckily the stay was only for one night.

    Location very convenient Staff Amount of space in the room for 3 people

    The shower was cold even with the hot only tap on! It was quite noisy with regards to outside noise. Maybe because we were on the highway side of the building.

    The spa was nice.

    Check in experience was anything but pleasant. I had emailed to arrange after hours check in was told I could as my flight had been delayed and I was now arriving at 4am. Got there whilst dark and couldn't check in then when I phoned a number on the door they rudely told me no one was there and I could check in but had to walk down to their sister accomodation with my all of my luggage. I asked for directions, he couldn't give them to me. Once I got there the receptionist had not been notified said they no longer do check ins for aria had to phone them herself then said I couldn't check in to my room at the aria and down graded me for a room on the 4th floor at bella (still charged me full price) and I could check in to my real apartment after 10am. No apologies for stuffing me around, I emailed them twice to confirm I would be able to get into my room which I was told if no one is there we can key you in remotely. No offers for late check out or breakfast in condolences. The last thing you need after a 14hr delayed flight plus a 10 and a half hour flight... Once I got into my real room I was disappointed. There was mould in the shower and the carpets were dirty. I upgraded and paid for the top one bedroom room executive suite and had emailed months in advance for a room with a good view. We were put in a room that had a flashing crown sign directly out of the bedroom window which was our 'view' (nothing like what you see in their pictures) and the bed was very very uncomfortable 2 single beds pushed together that you can obviously feel as they didn't connect properly with springs digging into our backs (so uncomfortable that I tried to get a flight home earlier) I cannot stress enough how horrible our stay was and would recommend that people spend their money elsewhere. This hotel does not deserve the star rating they have.
