I am gonna start with THE average breakfast. We decided to stay in this hotel after I had read all positive reviews. Some of them were almost ecstatic 'bout breakfast. Well, our breakfast expierience was really so so. Yes, indeed, the room, everything is very colorful, but the rest? Food was only average, cold scrumble eggs (kept "warm" by a tealight???), undrinkable coffee and chocolate, quite indifferent breakfast staff. Some of the bowls looked so worn that we had the feeling they were no clean. Thus, minus.
On the other hand, the hotel itself, especially its design, is a real "eye-catcher". Starting at the reception and lobby, through the lifts to the rooms.
Our check-in went smooth, we got extra info 'bout city centre etc.
Our room was cosy, clean, kinda trendy, with funny lamps hanging just above the bed and huge ball in the corner (which apparently was a substitute for a stool).
Although our window was on the street side, we slept well.
As some may notice this used to be Mercure and Accor failed on some levels to mask it. Having created such nice product, they shouldn't have saved money on bathrooms. In ours, the bath looked very old, the tiles as well. The gloomy impression was intesified by missing joint and black holes between the wall tiles.
Despite all these cons, we give it 4 stars out of 5 'cause we can sincerly recommend it to other people.
In my opinion it's a nice option for tourists, especially those young ones, however people travelling in business may find it a bit too colorful.
