How to Get There
We last visited the hotel some 5 years ago an were impressed with the hotel. However on arrival was disappointed to see that no interim renovation has been performed.
What were innovative features then now appears tired. For instance the inflating light system for ambient light just feels wrong.
In the meantime it also appears that the hotel is not being maintained well with peeling paint obvious on the outside balcony.
The in room safe was not secured in place and any wannabe thief could just take the safe and break it at leisure
When we last visited we really liked the in-house restaurant, they have tried and failed to make it feel like a high quality bistro with the food being decidedly average.
The breakfast was good and was the highlight of our stay at the hotel
The staff were efficient and helpful
Given the price of the hotel i would recommend searching around, because it did not feel value for money
We stayed at the property due to a flight cancellation and because one of we had previously used Raddison Blu in Dubai and had a wonderful experience.
After a rather stressful day, when we got to the hotel, there were two member of staff on each side of the reception and we went towards the one nearest. The lady (later on I found her name is Valentina) was looking after another couple who were in front of us as her lovely colleague was dealing with other guests. So we waited patiently for her to finish, which took a while and then thought it would be our turn. The phone at reception started to ring and she looked at us without even acknowledging our presence or our wait and went straight to the phone and answered like we were not even there. At that point I asked whether it would be possible to be at least spoken to and she raised her voice at me saying that she's on the phone and pointed dismayingly towards her colleague. I'm not even sure what the worst part is - her appalling attitude towards hotel guests that she didn't even have the courtesy to welcome, the fact she didn't for once apologise whilst we were being looked after by her colleague, who was actually really nice or the fact that she lied to our faces saying she had already been on the phone, when she clearly wasn't. In any event, in all my years of travel never have I ever encountered such a poor attitude from the person who is supposed to be an ambassador of the hotel. I am completely disappointed and shocked by Valentina's attitude and can only hope that management takes this into consideration such that other guests don't have to deal with this poor service.
Otherwise, the hotel was nice, the restaurant and the staff at breakfast were wonderful and the views were great.
We upgraded to a premium room with a 'balcony'. There is no balcony- just a small walk way with no chairs or anything. Even a table inside the room that blocks the balcony door- totally useless.
We thought we had booked a room with two separate beds - as promised on their website - but apparently that is a mistake - only small double beds are available...
Room is very old and run down - with the shower inside the bedroom. All the wood on the floor looks damaged by the water.. Quality and price do not match at all..
Rooftop bar is nice - so visit that and stay somewhere else... (and take a taxi - the neighborhood is not nice)
