Im really quite honest when I say that this is simply not a 4 star hotel. Yes its clean, yes they have a grand piano in the resturant and yes the 2 hotel staff members you see at any one time on duty where uniforms which resemble suits, but there is simply no way this is anythign close to a 4 star hotel. This is however a middle of the road 3 star hotel, with prices that reflect it. Since I was first at this hotel 16 months ago nothing has changed, which meand you knwo what to expect. As other reviewers have stated, breakfast buffett is basci cold meats, cheese, fruit, juice etc), and the resturant meals are actually quite poor and over priced. Most people from the hotel walk towards town center the Hombres Pizza restaurant, wcih is great, and comfortably busy after 8:30pm.
I will warn those business travellers about the 'free wifi'. Yes its free, but only because it would be criminal to charge for such a poor connection. I did a bandwidth test this time staying in the hotel, and the download speed clocks in at approx .3Mbps....so any of you using VPN are really quite screwed!
