    Stayed here on a Saturday night after a match. Place obviously hectic. Parked for free in secure underground car park. Buffet Lunch reasonable, service good. Quiet night sleep. Breakfast was good. Would use again. Only negatives, WiFi poor, reception toilets were dirty.

    Yes. There is a small grocery and pharmacy less than a 10 minute walk. When you walk out of the hotel front entrance, go right and there is a neighborhood. There a some nice restaurants there as well.
