Though it's a four star hotel, they appear as a 5 star hotel providing customers with magnificent service and facilities. It's a brand new hotel, beautifully decorated. Guests are welcomed and brought to the room by a staff you meet upon check in. The staff guides you around the room, with a positive, friendly and caring attitude. Our first impression of the hotel was amazing! However, I was kind of annoyed of the amount of dust on the ground. The lobby's ground didn't look to clean.
Everyday there is a little free snack time (around 6 - 9) for hotel guests by the library which is right next to the reception area. Apart from alcohol, there are no charges as I remember. Great service!
The breakfast appeared quite disappointing however. The food on the hot plate was cold. A lot of food didn't seem fresh. A funny thing I saw was the price list on each table.
It labels a couple of things:
Fresh fruit salad - 7 Euros
(Different types of) Eggs - 6 Euros
I found this quite funny cause first, they served a good variety of fresh cut fruits already in the breakfast buffet. I'm not too sure what the fresh fruit salad is like. But I didn't understand why they would charge you 7euros for a fresh fruit salad, It's quite pricy and not worth it.
Also, I was quite disappointed by the fact that they charged for cooking eggs of your choice (either boiled, fried or as an omelet). 6 euros again is not worth it as they serve scrambled eggs in the buffet breakfast which is complementary with your stay at this hotel. (but as mentioned previously, the hot plate was not hot enough, so the eggs was also kind of warm/cold)
The funniest thing of all knowing that they charge for eggs and fruit salad, is that they serve wine in the buffet breakfast with no price specified. I find it a bit ridiculous.
In conclusion, apart from the lobby's dusty ground and the breakfast, everything was great. I've enjoy may stay a lot.
