Details: I really liked this hotel, I arrived really early (as I usually do) and although they did have a room ready for me, it was on 1st floor with no view and a view is what I wanted at this place. They asked me if I was happy to wait, which I was and proceeded to give me a key to their hospitality lounge, now this place has taken service to a whole new level for me. They actually have a room for people who arrive to early, which is stocked with tea and coffee, has business facilities and showers. They also very kindly called me at around 10am, which is still 4 hours before official check in to let me know my room was ready. Something I have never experienced in my travels worldwide.
The rooms are really nice with a cozy feel, big bed and modern bathrooms, possibly recently renovated. The higher floors either have views of the city or of the airport depending on which side of the building you find yourself on. They have a shuttle bus to take you to the airport, which only costs $6.50 and leaves every half an hour. There is a bar and restaurant on site, the bar tender makes one of the best mojitos I've ever had, and again that's a VERY big call. The only way this place falls down is the price of the food, $34 per person for breakfast meant we ate at the airport where it was actually cheaper and $14 for a hand and cheese toastie, was probably the most ridiculous thing I've seen in a while on a room service menu.
