thats the word you're looking for when you check into this ice cold very cool boutique hotel.
From the start you realise that this is a classy place with a superb location.
We booked in for 4 nights for our first anniversary and were greeted by a bottle of prosecco on ice and a note from the hotel manager as soon as we got to our room.
The hotel is decieving as it's a lot bigger than it looks from the outside.
Our room was on the 4th floor at the back of the hotel overlooking one of the many bustling streets, nice view but high enough up to be quiet. Great window and double glazing and icy cold air con that was a welcome relief at times from the blustering heat on the streets! (up to 40 degrees some days!!)
The room was compact but not small and with an enormously high ceiling. All in white with great storage facilities and a fab shower and a mega trendy bathroom.
Well stocked mini bar, great room service and a very impressive house keeping service that seemed to pop in at least twice a day to either clean or turn down beds and leave sweets and water!
Breakfast was good, a large selection of continental, hams, eggs and cheeses and cooked food with a great selection of teas and coffees.
We didn't eat in the restaurant at night which we should have done really but in this amazing city we felt that we should try local places. We did use the bar a few times which is a little pricey but that's usual for city centre hotels of this calibre.
The staff here are exceptional, always friendly, smiling and helpful.
My wife has a nut allergy so when we had a glass of wine at night they replaced the obligatory nuts with a lovely selection of fresh fruit pieces, chocolates and crisps.
All in All this is a top drawer hotel, a real 'must' visit hotel in this amazing city.
