I was struggling to decide whether to give 4 or 5 stars as the hotel itself is great and there is a lot of things they do "extra" to make your stay special. However in all those "extra" things they may have forgotten to make sure about functionality.
Excellent check-in service with advise on where to go etc
Nice breakfast if you are a meat eater
Room was extremely clean with a view to the canal
The hotel is nicely decorated
I could go on with pros about the hotel because it is truly great but a few things I didn't like were:
- poor choice of vegetable for breakfast (as a vegetarian I was stuck with bread and cheese / eggs etc), also there is on option to make coffee on your own - you get the luxurious service form proper coffee machine but that is not something I like as I like my latte strong...
- no place for soap unless you put it at the shelf/mirror above the sink
- the shelf/mirror above the sink is quite low so you can hit your head easily
- the lights / aircon are operated from a modern panel and you need to figure out how to do it while all i want after a day of walking is just to press a button and go to sleep...
Overall if you are looking for a luxury and are not bothered about little things this is a place for you. I would not recommend it for families with children or for long term stays.
