I was booked in this hotel by Qatar Airways, as part of their STPC package.
Arrived at around 23.00 and proper buffet dinner was still available.
Check-in staff very fast and helpful.
Room was quite big - a proper suite, fully equipped with smaller lounge area with flatscreen and dvd player, full refrigerator, microwave, cooking plates, washing machines. I guess it would be useful for a self-catering trip.
The room was nice, but the detergents used for washing the linen left my skin itching mildly.
The amenities in the bathroom are medium grade products, with very nice scents.
I had stayed in August 2011, and the staff seemed to be from India/Pakistan/Bangladesh.
Now, to my surprise, all the staff i saw and talked to seemed to be Filipino.
Would this suggest that a full staff rotation occurred in half a year?
The staff was very polite, courteous and professional.
There is paid wifi, but since I was staying inside the hotel for less than six hours my main goal was to sleep a bit.
In short, if one needs to book this place won't be disappointed.
The only downside - the image of the building in Tripadvisor does not truly resemble the actual building.
