The design and decor of this hotel is definitely quite attractive. Everything is very modern looking. The room was clean but we found the temperature quite warm. We weren't a fan of the separated toilet from the rest of the bathroom. The shower felt strange - it was either too strong of a water pressure (kind of painful) from the small hand held showerhead or it spat all over the place from the overhead showerhead. The table near the door tilted in a slanted position, making it difficult to put anything on there. We found the bed uncomfortable after a couple of nights, causing a bit of a back ache. The room was generally clean.
Our biggest complaint would be the lack of signage or notification about the cost of breakfast (11 Euros per person). When we checked in, the front desk agent told us breakfast was served from 7 - 10:30am, but she did not say that it costs anything. There was also no signage next to the breakfast whatsoever indicating the cost. You would think that it would say on the table where breakfast was laid out exactly how much it costs. If a hotel has a bowl of candies out in its reception area without any price listed, would you assume you needed to pay to eat one?
Now it wouldn't be a huge issue if the breakfast was a gourmet buffet of hot items, but it was just a small selection of baguettes and croissants, cheese in plastic packages, and store bought packages of yogurt. Probably worth at most 6 Euros per person in my opinion.
When we checked out, we said we didn't know there was a cost to breakfast, and the front desk agent shrugged and said "It is very clear to us." Well, it wasn't clear to us. We paid the extra 66 Euros, but in our opinion, it is borderline fraudulent to not label how much something is next to the product or at least tell people when they check in that breakfast is 11 Euros each. If we had known, we would've avoided it completely.
Shoddy breakfast antics aside, the room is clean, the location is convenient and the neighbourhood is nice, so I begrudgingly give this a 3 star rating.
