This hotel has prices at a premium level, I paid 308 EUR per night for an Executive room. The room was small and really nothing special, and the bathrooms are in need of renovation. The claimed "partly seaview" is maybe technically true, but I almost had to lean out over the balcony railing in order to get a small glimpse of the sea between the buildings concealing it.
The hotel does not deliver what they promise. In the leaflet given at arrival it says "The bar - snack on demand" but when asking for a snack in the bar only drinks were available. When having paid to watch a movie, it turned out that the pay-TV did not work. The staff could not fix it, but charged for it anyway! I had booked a room including breakfast buffet - it turned out that the breakfast buffet was very basic and there was no hot food on it. So in order to get some hot food for breakfast, from the second day onwards I paid 33 EUR for room service breakfast with egg and bacon - after having paid 308 EUR for a room including breakfast.
Like the hot breakfast, many other things are also charged extra. Even the little shampoo bottle and the plastic comb in the bathroom come with a price tag. The minibar does not have some basic things like a chocolate bar - instead I had to pay 8,50 EUR for 55g of cashew nuts.
Finally, during my stay the elevators were under renovation. Out of three elevators one was under replacement - understandable - but the second one could not be called to the upper floors. So in the morning everyone going down had to use one single elevator. Stopping at almost every floor 0-9, and having to wait for it to arrive, it took me between 4 and 8 minutes (!) to get from my 9th floor room to ground level. I understand that a hotel needs to exchange elevators, but to partly disable one when there are only two operational ones is a really bad move.
