We loved our stay here. We paid extra for a view and it was well worth it! From the 12th floor, every time we looked out we could see something new we hadn't seen before. The staff were very friendly, the decor is lovely and lifts it above the usual generic hotel, the room as quiet, and the beds were the comfiest I can remember in a hotel.
However there were a few niggles. The room service menu - there was none in the room when we arrived, we had to ask - had nothing vegetarian on it, not even chips. The first floor bar that we got a voucher for "20% off first drink and free tapas" was inexplicably closed when we went down. Breakfasts are overpriced at €18.50 each, so we went over to Bagels and Beans 10 metres across the road - but this has a limited breakfast menu. And though they have bicycles for hire, they were permanently out for the week we were there. Finally, we were surprised there was no on-demand movies on the TV - just a (reasonable) selection of European and American channels.
Summary: great room. some room for improvement!
