CHARACTER & STYLE
Step inside the huge glass-fronted elliptical building and you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd accidentally entered a shopping centre - you're in one of Europe's largest conference hotels. On arrival, escalators lead to the reception and lobby. In the reception and bar areas, you'll find shiny floors and squeaky faux-leather armchairs.
With over 1,000 rooms, it's no surprise reception is busy at virtually all times of day - but staff do a good job at trying to accommodate everyone as swiftly as possible. Guests will enjoy the spa, home to a heated swimming pool, sauna, steam room and 24hr fitness centre. If you're here on business, you'll have no shortage of event spaces to choose from to host meetings and conferences.
