We stayed at this hotel on 2 occasions in July a total of 8 nights. The location is great. Close to the station (don't waste money on a taxi!), and walking distance to all the major sites. There is also an abundance of good places to eat across all price ranges.
We were initially concerned that our room was a bit dark, so the staff showed us several other rooms. We stayed in the one we were originally assigned, but we were impressed with the efforts of the manager to ensure we were comfortable.
The split level layout of the floors could be a bit confusing, but the rooms were very well appointed, with quality linen.
We thought the reception staff were some of the best during our entire 6 weeks in Europe - helpful, friendly and professional. We also enjoyed the breakfasts in the bright and airy dining room.
The wifi was better than at many other hotels too.
We chose this hotel based on the reviews in TA and they were right.
