A very good location. The hotel is situated on a side street. A very small reception area. The receptionist was efficient and friendly and so was the concierge. We were upgraded with out request which was nice. The room was large with a large beautiful marble bathroom. Stunning antique furniture all around the room.
There was noise late at night from the corridor, it is not the hotels fault but it did disturb the tranquillity.
The problem was with the breakfast. 2 waitresses which were literally rude and blasé! They did not come to the table for 14 minuets, even though it was not busy. Both were just chatting to each other laughing constantly. I got up and requested coffee for two; the dark hair waitress looked at me with a rather unpleasant stare. She came to the table to take our order, but was cold and unfriendly. My wife was rather upset by her approach. It did ruin our meal.
The bar service at night was very good and the wine delicious.
On our check out after we were asked how our stay was, I informed the receptionist about the breakfast incident. He thought I was joking! I advised him that I was not. He explained that the waitress that we were talking about is very shy. I said in reply - She was certainly not shy to us!
I expect from a hotel in this calibure which has a good reputation, to employ affable and polite stuff not a rude an impolite stuff.
