Our room was very big, with a comfortable sofa and an even better bed (2.20m long, which is fantastic for a tall person like me). The bathroom was also very spacious, with a separate bathtub and shower stall. One of the two lights there was out though, and the shower itself was average.
The hotel tries very hard to be artsy, but it feels like it's stuck halfway between a standard 3-star and and a funky 5-star. There are lots of nice touches, but somehow it doesn't quite come together.
Also, there are three steps outside to the main door, and then five more inside to get to the reception and the lifts. That's a lot of suitcase lifting.
Staff were friendly, but not overly so, as other reviewers seem to have experienced.
We had breakfast included in our rate. There was fresh fruit, pastries, and cereals. More than adequate, but nothing memorable. I asked for decaf coffee, and it was espresso style (very nice), but my partner's regular coffee was of the standard North American dirty dishwasher variety, and he said it wasn't very good.
All in all we had a very nice stay, and I would recommend this hotel.
