The higher price of having a hotel right next to the airport proved its worth, literally a two-minute walk from the hotel lobby to the airport terminal 3 via the overhead walkway ramp. No worries about traffic delays getting to the airport, only oversleeping. Even that isn't a real problem, because the hotel offers wake-up service.

On the return trip through town, we stopped by again. My partner ordered the halibut, but cooked normally this time, because the waiter suggested that it was better that way. We didn't agree, though. My food wasn't very good because I ordered lamb, and it came out well done and burnt, while I prefer it rare.
