    The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The room was basic and clean.

    We had been travelling for 2 weeks and had quite a bit of luggage. It would have been nice to know there wasn't an elevator. The air conditioner needs a good cleaning and it was also very noisy.

    Breakfast OK

    The room was not very clean (lots of hairs) - the bathroom, especially the shower, was very cramped and disappointing. The air-conditioning was extremely noisy and the fan could not be adjusted.

    Breakfast was much better than I expected, and was available from 7 - 11am. There was a choice of 3 different, good quality, fruit juices. Fresh fruit, cereal, breads, toast, cold meats, spanish tortilla, cheeses, yogurts, croissants and other sweet rolls/bagels/donuts. The coffee was made by a very easy to use coffee machine and you could have as many as you wanted. The staff member in charge of topping up the breakfast as it became depleted was friendly and helpful and even with only 15 minutes left for breakfasting he still topped up items which were diminishing. The staff were very helpful and our room was cleaned with new towels every day, and bedlinen changed after just 2 days. The hotel was less than 100 metres from the train station and reception was more than happy to allow us to leave our luggage there for the day after we checked out.

    The air conditioning unit in our room was very old. The only way to operate it was to put the remote control 2 cm away from the unit, but even though we punched in 25*, or sleep mode, or moving vents etc into the remote, the unit just blasted out cold air at deafening decibels. The room was too hot without air con, but overnight the room became ver, very cold with the air con on, and to switch it off/turn it on always required you to get out of bed, point the remote right at the button on the wall unit. The relatively new looking, flat screen, wall mounted LG TV would also not work. The TV standby light was on, but no matter where we put the remote it refused to come on fully. I stood on the bed to get to the buttons on the top of the TV and tried all of these too, but the TV still wouldn't work. Even though reception gave us a leaflet about accessing the hotel's wifi, we also never actually managed to get that to work either. The hotel's name never came up in the list of available networks, or when it did the pop up required to then put in username or password only appeared once.
