Stayed here for 3 nights. Booked directly with the hotel and got their 'free use of spa/water facilities' promo, which is very worthwhile. One of the evenings, it was just my husband and I and another gentleman. Another night, even though I was told that there would be room, the place was basically taken over by 2 lovey-dovey couples who way overstayed their allotted time and were making me uncomfortable. (A word about this - based on other reviews, I understood that if you tell the hotel that you are reserving the water facilities from e.g..5-6 pm, that means there would either not be anyone else or maybe another couple (the facilities are small and don't lend themselves to having more than 4 people there - 6 would really be pushing it). On the second day, I asked about availability, the receptionist checked with the spa and said that the spa was reserved 4-5, but after 5 I could come at any time, but when I came down at about 5:20, I was told that there were 4-5 people there and I needed to come back 30 min later. Well, that did not work with my plans so I stayed - and good thing I did , because the aforementioned lovebirds were all still there kissing and doing god knows what else, and acting like they owned the spa, until 6, when I gave up and left.
The glass elevator is a nice feature, as are indoor/outdoor sitting spaces. Didn't check out the roof terrace (was too cold).
The room was very small, but clean and modern.
The safe was a nice feature, as was the minibar - not that well stocked, but with enough room to store some of our stuff).
Unfortunately, wi-fi doesn't work with iOS 6 in the rooms (but works in the lobby). I was able to work on my computer (not Apple) from the room some of the times, but not others (maybe the network only has a limited number of connection points and all were being used at that particular time).
Sound insulation is not good (we could hear people outside the room coming/going, talking, etc.O. For some unknown reason the first night of our stay the window was left open (we didn't open it and didn't realize it was open), which obviously exacerbated the noise issue.
The bathroom was large and nice (limited amenities, though). The tub was very deep and I used it a few times during the stay.
It was nice to have the "one level up" room - the wooden beams really added to the ambiance and the slanted ceilings -to the airy feeling.
The bed was a bit hard, not particularly comfortable.
The breakfast, included in the rate, was nice.
A good selection of cereal, breakfast breads, coldcuts/jams, fruit, and yogurt, as well as hard boiled and hot cooked eggs and hot meats. There's also a "wine and cheese" free tasting every afternoon that we didn't make it to, and hot drinks in the evening (which we took to the room - tea/hot water with lemon) were free.
Airport transfers were well organized and arrived on time.
Concierges were helpful with restaurant suggestions and airport check-in. Very good location.
