I stayed at Formule 1 a night before an early flight. the rooms are tiny. everyone writes about it in the reviews, but I didn't believe it until I entered the room. it is really a room that's only good to sleep in. the bed occupies all of it.
also - there are no basic essentials like a kettle.
the internet connection is also a problem, as the hotel offers a minimum of 2 hours for 20$, and you have to use all of them at once. the internet connection is really slow, so most of the 2 hours I waited for pages to load. there really should be an option to buy less internet time for less money.
however, the location is great, there are many things to see around and many shops to visit, and the free shuttle service is excellent.
I recommend the hotel for people who really just need to spend the night.
