The best thing about this place was the staff. Everyone from the doorman (who even knew my name, since I arrived late and had given notice) to the receptionists were friendly, efficient, and helpful. Many front desk staff seem East-European, but speak English like the Prince of Wales, and are fantastically accommodating and service oriented. And everybody smiled! How often do you see that?
My bags were swiftly taken to my room, which was nice, in a cool industrial sort of style. Bathroom was freshly painted, probably needed a touch up, and I missed nothing. WIFI was free, which is very important to me. Enough towels and a good bed.
Excellent bed, even overslept a little...
Had the guest special brunch at the "famous"? restaurant, for a very good price. I thought. Though the food was something you would expect in an awful cafeteria presented on fancy plates. Stale danish and a disgusting old, brown sluggish fruit salad.Not impressed at all, but that is another story.
When I checked out, the smiling staff gave me all the assistance I needed for my onward journey, and were absolutely magnificent. This is the main reason why I will gladly return to this hotel! Location is fantastic, but many other alternatives exist in the same area. So management should hug their staff, count their blessings, and never let them go!
