                  I liked its location, and the quality/price reference very good.

                  the bathroom almost small, and the Internet connection bad in the room.

                • Single
                  8.8

                  Great service, everythings was taken care of very well! Nice location, and good restaurant

                  The wifi was quite annoying: bad signal on the 6th floor and you had to make an account every single time you wanted to use the internet. Very time consuming. Also i thought that 50 dollars for washing some socks, 3 shirts and 5 pieces of underwear was pretty expensive. But maybe that's normal in a hotel.

                • Single
                  6.6

                  Size of the room Breakfast

                  The long check in time and trying to move to an inferior hotel as they claimed they were overbooked. Traffic noise WiFi did not work all the time The bar is tired and does not have very good ambience Being treated like a potential thief when departing the hotel. I had paid my bill the night before as I had an early start the next day. When I was leaving security refused to let me leave. I had to go and check out again!

                • Single
                  9.2

                  The staff in this Hotel were excellent and couldn't do enough for you. I loved the fact they had free Wi-Fi and were in such a great central location. This meant we could walk to most appointments.

                  The restaurant downstairs for breakfast was a bit tired and could probably do with an upgrade. The drinks were very expensive.

                • Single
                  8.2

                  Cleanliness and comfort of the rooms; Pool and other facilities on the roof. Location - In the center of the city

                  Each floor has different levels which requires one to lug the bags instead of rolling-away

                • Single
                  6.4

                  The staff is very very friendly.

                  Most of the rooms are very noisy. street noise, generator noise or extractor noise.

                • Family with children
                  5.8

                  None

                  To be forced to checkout by 10 am in the morning, Hilton would have allowed me to stay until the time of my flight in the evening
