We are staying at this hotel at the moment. We were persuaded by other trip advisor reviews. The ambience is certainly very nice, but the worries started when we checked in. Check in time is 3pm but we didn't get our room until 430pm. It is a very noisy room directly underneath the pool side terrace on level 7. You can hear everyone walking around. Unforgivably they won't let you iron your own shirts. They charge 7 euros or so per shirt to do so. And bear in mind this is a very expensive hotel in the first place. This is just an unacceptable rip off in this day and age. It looks good therefore but this hotel is more interested in what it can charge than the service it renders.
