  10. 10. From the web site<br /><ul><li>This 5-star hotel and residence offers European hospitality with an unmistakable French touch.

  13. 13. From Tripadvisor<br /><ul><li>It's getting old, the rooms are unappealing and it will never be more than a business hotel
  14. 14. Being a Sofitel hotel we expected something quite 'flashy' unfortunately we were let down. The rooms, although comfortable and clean, were not of the standard we expected and were definately not what we expected after looking at the photos on the hotel's website.
  15. 15. Booking my stay via the Sofitel website after a pleasant experience at several other Sofitel locations over the past 2 years with my new job I was looking forward to a 5 star luxury stay after a stressful business trip. My expectations were reasonable, however certainly not met by this hotel.</li></li></ul><li>
