Stayed here for 2 nights with my wife.
Our room was clean and light but not particularly big. This was fine as we were only using this as a base for exploring
We arrived using the RENF and Metro service from the airport, to Cort and then onto Glories. The hotel is a short walk from the Metro. Opposite the hotel is a Tram stop on line T4 which was also handy for getting about.
Opposite the hotel is a shopping centre with a large Carrefour, Starbucks and various other shops and restaurants. We used the Carrefour to buy breakfast supplies and breakfast was expensive, and very busy (we travelled during the Easter holidays)
On the first night we used the hotel restaurant and sampled the 22 Euro buffet which was actually pretty good.
The hotel staff were helpful and polite and the general ambiance is that of a busy city centre hotel.
There is a small gym and pool on the roof which is pretty good but sadly despite our best intentions we didn't have time to use. Too much sightseeing and sleeping to do!
I'd stay again for a functional hotel within easy reach of all the sights, but not right inside the tourist district.
