tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • BigMac1888 : Bedford, United Kingdom
Very well resourced hotel

A helpful and well finished hotel with high standards of comfort ideal for the business traveller with free wifi / water and accessible ice machines. There is an outdoor pool and an adequate fitness centre. Views from the high floors are excellent. Eager chambermaids didn't bother me as I was out for work daily. Good value hotel.

Good value

The rooms were large, exceptionally clean and comfortable; the bathroom and shower were fantastic. Breakfast is an event in itself - I've never seen anything like it. The entire hotel was gorgeous and top-notch. An extremely good value.

No hot water!

Hotel is nice and adequate. I could probably state positive things about it and give it a higher rating but my first day I jumped in the shower and water was just lukewarm at best (I'm being generous, it was just a couple of degrees from really unbearable cold). By the tone I was done water started warming up, but I was done by this time. Next day no I didn't complain. But this morning at 3:30 am same problem! Water is just plain cold and it took about 7 or 8 minutes to warm up. This is unacceptable from an environmental point of view and also because I don't want to wait almost 10 minutes for warm water to take a shower! Staff was just OK, not really friendly or welcoming, but adequate still. Would I stay here again? If warm water problem was solved, yes, sure, but that is a big deterrent for me.

Excellent stay!

Our room was very clean, the staff was very kind. The pool was excellent, good temperature. For breakfast it was a little limited. The location of the hotel its brilliant, very close from Multiplaza and Multicentro!

Still a nice city hotel

So I have been here several times, I love the rooms, location and most of the service. On this trip the service and food for breakfast was the worst I have ever experienced at any riu. The food selection at breakfast was very weak and the service was terrible. I pretty much had to go get my own coffee. Either than that my stay was great.
