This hotel is well priced and is a short walk to the icc which is super convenient for business and leisure if required. Staff are very friendly but are not able to cope with the high volumes during peak periods.

Forget the elevator and use the stairs. The gym and pool are not great. You might make do with the gym but the pool is 4 strokes wide, kidney shaped.
