We stayed twice at this hotel within a period of two weeks and only have praise for the service we received on every occasion. We stayed using my SPG points and as platinum member, we were upgraded to massive suites on both occasions ! On one of the stays, we ended up in the suite located right under the signature coupola of this old fashioned building. Yes, it does need a bit of a refurbishment but it oozes charm, elegance, old money and intrigue ! Agatha Christie and Poirot would feel very at home in the surroundings of this property ! The rooms / suites are well appointed and we particulary liked the marble clad bathrooms and the quality Caudalie toiletries. The breakfast is a unique experience which should not be missed as it is served in this spectacular grand salon with views across the river and towards the see. The food offered at the Asian restaurant is also of high quality as are the drinks and cocktails served at the bar. The valet service is very efficient and cars are being kept in a car park in the vicinity of the hotel. Also, this property is dog friendly and our pet receives a lot of attention every time we stay with bowls laid out in the room in advance of your arrival. This hotel is not trendy not does it offer you all the latest technologies which you find in more modern hotels but this is precisely what we are looking for, excellent service in the traditional way, and the Maria Christina has this in abundance. We shall return.
