We stayed or five nights at the end of march.
Reception was friendly and helpful, service was always friendly and competent, maids were VERY friendly and cleaned the rooms well.
Shopping mall is just a 3 minute walk away, walking into the city is fun - because it's all downhill - for the way back I recommend a taxi :-)
The Spa is quite OK - not a super-duper funpark, but it has a decent pool, a jacuzzi, two small saunas (one dry and one steam) plus some rooms for massages and other treatments.
The fitness room consists of two treadmills, one cycle and a weights-machine.
Everything was in good shape/state, the saunas are clean, the water in the pools aswell.
Only the lower, outer edge of the sauna cabins had some slight mold / corroded paint on it - but nothing serious.
The spa-personel was super-friendly.
The concierge-service at the counter was friendly and helpful - they recommended some great restaurants - you can rely on them.
If you book the business-package you get access to the VIP room on the 19th floor. Here you get some free soft-drinks from a fridge, small pastries in the morning and you can use a espresso/coffee maker. Well the coffee-beans could be better, compared to any espresso you get for € 1 in the city this was not a top hit. But it doesn't "suck" - still decent coffee.
TV in the room (tower room 17th floor) was a 32" LG with decent picture and a lot of free inputs in case you want to hook up your stuff here. Channels are mostly portuguese with many subtitled US shows. We got only two German stations (ZDF and RTL), but then it was a holiday and not a couch session :-)
Bed was hard (as we like it) and very comfy. Many pillows and blankets if you need them. All perfectly clean and fresh.
We got bathrobes, an umbrella, the usual shower caps and some great bath/hygiene-products for free use. The bathroom had a tub, toilet and bidet, huge mirror and good ventilation.
The only not-so-good thing was the hotel internet/wifi.
As part of the business-package we got a voucher for each day free of charge (usually € 10 each) and were able to logon with ease.
Basic connection was OK but slow (maximum of 1 MBit/sec) and very unstable. Seems that they have a lot of DNS/routing issues, some pages didn't load at all, some without pictures, VPN does not work at all (not a good thing if you need it for your business), streaming is pretty much out of the question. All that was pretty random, about 50% it worked just slow but fine. And again: Holiday not hackercamp...
All in all we would chose this hotel again without any hesitation and you should too!
