gb3 night business trip
Fair 4.0
Im sorry but this is probably the worst nights sleep either of us have ever had at a hotel. There was endless noise on our floor almost every night until 5am with doors slamming endlessly...and no one in reception to complain to when I went down the following mornings. The hotel itself is very nicely designed although sink space in the bathroom was almost non-existent. Location was really good.

Fair 4.0
I liked the room minus the fact we had problems with the AC, shower door getting stuck alongside with the fact we had a lot of mosquitoes in the room. I did like the hotel itself offered a lot but a lot of hidden charges that was not mentioned.
Sadi, gb5 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
As usual, very clean and the staff service is the best
gb3 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Tremendous location, and views from high floor rooms as well as the rooftop bar. 25 people going mental in the room next to me at 2am, and security taking an hour and four phone calls to make it upstairs to turf them all out wasn’t great. Nor was having to move rooms at 2am as a result- another few phone calls to get this into works

Good 6.0
Self service check in means you can miss some of the perks you are paying for. Service average at breakfast and not consistent across the experience. Great location and the rooftop view is amazing.
