Although the Duke may be viewed as a little too far out of the city centre for a short city break, in actual fact it's a very good choice due to the excellent shuttle service (half hourly in each direction) and quiet, residential location. You won't be bothered by noise here, and it's only 10 minutes on the shuttle to the heart of the city. Although we didn't have a balcony (shame), our room was decent enough. Bathroom fittings are getting old and the separate shower was so small that we reverted to the bath, which was ok. a comfortable bed made for a decent night's sleep, but as some other reviewers have commented, if you need to adjust the aircon (as we did - too hot otherwise), this needs to be done via reception...weird, but it does work. Breakfast was fine but nothing special, and overall service was good. One recommendation: a 10 minute walk away is restaurant Metamorfosi, a sublime, Michelin-starred restaurant; think €120 per head and you're about there, but it is genuinely worth every euro. So, the Duke is a good hotel close to a fantastic restaurant: not a bad combination!
