    Location

    Mistake to book this hotel. It's not what it claimed - 3 star hotel? I've seen better hotels for the same rate. Does not deserve it's rating for sure. Was given a basement room and go through 5 doors before getting to room. No mini bar (not that I use it) for a 3 star hotel and room looks aged. Not to mention the male front counter staff was unfriendly and glum when checking in and could only manage with one or two phrases response. Disappointing indeed for a '3 star' hotel. Just one star at the most. Would not recommend.

    The shortbread was a very nice touch. It was nice to come in to the room after our flight and have something to snack on.

    The walls were a bit thin, but that only really mattered when there was a loud talker next door.
