Having read the fantastic reviews about this hotel, we had looked forward to staying here; however, it was rather a disappointment. On the plus side, the room was nice enough and included free wi-fi. However, apart from the bed, there was no place to sit (neither sofa nor chairs). What we hated most was that the hotel keeps its front door locked 24/7. So, you have to ring the doorbell to enter, have to wait for someone to come to the door (there was never anyone at reception), have to stand at the door while someone looks you up-and-down as if you are a criminal; then, hopefully, you look decent enough for the door to be opened; then, you have to give your name so that they can check if you are allowed in the hotel. We found this procedure very unpleasant, intrusive, indiscreet, and unexpected of a hotel of this price-range. If you are badly-dressed, looking a bit rough, or have any notion of inviting someone up to your room, you may want to think again. The hotel and reviews make much of the hotel’s organic breakfast. We found it to be very uncomfortable, formal, and pretentious. Every food item has a card which describes what it is and verifies its “organic” origin – even the salt and pepper on the table had a card with a description! This was simply too much. Overall, we would not recommend this hotel nor stay there again. There are better, less pretentious, more relaxing, and much cheaper options in the city.
